With AYNO - the first design of a new midgard lamp since the 1950s, industrial designer Stefan Diez is testing the boundaries between the origin and status quo of adjustable lighting. The draft seeks a formal as well as technical radical approach to the matter.
Central feature of the AYNO lighting family is a fiberglass rod, which is stretched to the bow by the luminaire cable. The inherent tension of the rod allows a lamp without any joints. By sliding the two adjustment rings at top and bottom, the fiberglass rod is bent into the desired position and the light is directed where needed. The cable tightens the rod into an arc, of which the radius can be varied as required using the adjustment rings. The fine adjustment is done with the swiveling lampshade.
AYNO is one of the first LED lights that can be repaired by the user without tools: the light head or transformer can be replaced by hand using plug connections. AYNO is largely made from recycled materials. The three completely recyclable primary materials of the luminaire can be easily separated by hand for pure recycling without tools. The use of semi-finished products avoids transport routes, since the standardized materials can be sourced from local markets.
