Research has shown that, more than ever, residents are using their living spaces for a wider variety of activities. A static lighting setup, which many people have in their homes, has been shown not to be able to accommodate this breadth of activities, thus adaptive lighting is necessary. Athru can alter the illumination, colour temperature and direction of light it produces to create a wide breadth of lighting that might best support the variety of activities performed in our living spaces. Additionally, Athru can be controlled simply using one industry standard dimmer switch. The use of this enables truly intuitive user interaction and allows for a relatively simple installation process. Athru uses a modern aesthetic language and is designed to be attractive and complimentary to a space without being obtrusive or clashing with a user’s personal style.
