Huara was developed on the idea of integrating the first and last moment in the history of light, of bringing together the original, celestial light source with the electronics of today. On one hand, we want light to vary its intensity and direction according to phases more than moving pieces of a mechanism. On the other hand, we want to acknowledge the fact that the future of light is electronic, not electric. The distinctive potential of electronics is its capacity to carry information that allow for multiple ways of interaction, such as a tactile screen.
Huara is an interactive fixture that is intuitively activated by touch. Its dark, spherical shape is divided into geometric panels which can be independently controlled by touch, to bring light as desired. Its name comes from the aymarà word for star, the native population of the Acatama desert, a place so dark that one can see more stars than anywhere else on the planet. Huara is to honor the original light source of mankind and the state-of-the-art technology.
” Our project is a dark sphere intuitively activated by touch. Huara is the aymarà word of star. Our project for Artemide is about integrating the first and the last moment in the history of light: celestial spheres with electronics.” Elemental
