The flare facilities a rectilinear aluminium branch that sits on a turn base, and supports a round, prosaic shade. A lollipop stick-shaped add-on on a tip allows users to lean a flare adult and down, dimming or brightening a light as they do so.

“All functions are simplified into one discerning movement that leave a charge light to be blank of any buttons or sliders,” pronounced Frambach, who is now study Industrial Design during a School of Arts and Design in Kassel, Germany.

The designer based a light’s resource on the adult and down suit of flip switches, and a approach laptop screens automatically lighten when opened. The shapes of pop-up headlights that lift from cars bonnets also shaped a anxiety for Nod’s shade.

The light was a target of a Designplus endowment in 2016, given by a German Design Council, and was shown during a Light + Building fair in Frankfurt from 13 to 18 Mar 2016.

Australian engineer Ross Gardam also incorporated movement into his Aura list lamp, that can be practiced by turning its magnetically trustworthy shade, while David Derksen combined a set of lights that show opposite patterns when rotated.
