Lexus Design Award 2016, shortlisted
It is anticipated that we will get the power with WPT (wireless power transfer) system in the future. First we can use it only on the table, and soon it will become a certain space - it’s the energy field.
How can we design such place? We need to sense the power like where we feel comfortable or where reception is good.
So we propose the LED charm. It contains only LED and the coil, and looks like a small stone. We can use it as a very small lighting, and also as a notification because it reacts and glimmer when it comes near the energy field.
In Japan, they cover the ground with white stones in the shrine to show it is a holy place. The same in the energy field, luminous stones let us know the place we can get the wireless power.
