Helios Touch, designed by James Vanderpant during his final year studying Product Design, was brought to market in 2016 with the help of Dyena, a company normally specialising in engine design and maritime architecture.
Dyena has announced this week that the lights are now being sold in shops around the world.
James Glover, founder and Technical Director of Southampton-based Dyena, said: “It’s been a phenomenal success – sales are doing really well and we are having to ramp up production, currently manufacturing 10,000 units a month.”
The modular wall light uses moveable hexagon panels to design a unique artwork. Any space can be turned into a light source, and with a swipe, the wall is illuminated by the path of the hand. The low-voltage LED panels are attached using internal magnetic contacts allowing them to be rearranged into any shape.
