Suspense Lamp


A playful lamp which lights up when hovering above the beaming table. The base of the lamp was designed from a simple coil which is able to receive wireless energy using induction. Suspense was presented at the Palais de Tokyo for the Teslamaniacs event in collaboration with Dorkbot Paris.

Technical Details

This installation was built using a hacked induction cook-top inside the wooden table, and a matching secondary coil made with 26 loops of wire connected directly to the light bulb.

When placed directly on the table, the intensity of the light can be controlled by moving it on the surface, according to the distance from the induction center.
