INTELIGENT TABLE

Product Design

Smart table design with touchable wood and light that changes to condition the user's circadian cycle. A Scale 1:1 model was made, and in which its entire process of manufacturing and the operation of electrical

components was carried out.

Tools:

SolidWorks, Photoshop, Illustrator, Arduino.

CHALLENGE

The project is based on creating a table with emotional light as a complement to the design. In my team's case,

it was chosen to add the challenge of making the table totally intelligent with tactile wood,. and light that could condition the user's circadian cycle by varying the color

of the light and its intensity according to the need.

USER & NEEDS

The design is based on hotel users with jetlag or users with sleep problems. These users need a comfortable environment; depending on the light temperature, to wake up, be active or fall asleep. The design is modern and subtle, easy to adapt to any modern interior design and to project an adequate light that matches the environment that surrounds it.

INVESTIGATION & ANALYSIS

An investigation  about the circadian rhythm and the physical, mental and behavioral changes that occur in humans in a 24-hour cycle according to light - dark and between neutral - warm lights is made. It is also investigated how to program the cycle of these lights automatically on the table and how to make the wood respond to touch. Three different proposals are made,  

and the one which meets the best the characteristics

of minimalism and innovation is chosen.

SOLUTION

Tests are made with different types of wood sheets where copper tapes are placed underneath the surface to conduct electricity when touched. Tests are carried out with the shades of light and diffulmination.
