SystemX LED version S launched in Tokyo

A new family of SystemX LED  by Yamagiwa was launched in the beginning of March at the lighting fair in Tokyo. Visitors had the opportunity to view the SystemX LED version S for the first time when it was presented along with the previously revealed versions L and M.

SystemX LED series has now expanded into three sizes by changing the light source from the fluorescent to LED. Having ‘the light as a life-form’ as a theme, the series was developed as if going back to the evolution of life.

Much like a light form from the Big Bang, The systemX LED version S was developed as the division and growth of cells are repeatedly found in the process of evolution, based on the concept of ‘the first ever created life-form = light’.

Pursuing a myriad of directional exploration and configuration, a three-dimensional Y shaped triangle is made as a unit drawing inspiration from the X and Y chromosomes and also the structure of DNA.

As part of the permanent collection of Die Neue Sammlung Museum, the Moot chair has been recently photographed at the entrance to their collection in Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich. Moot chair was shot by Rainer Viertlboeck against Luigi Colani’s work to form an historic link between these organic visionary objects.

“Im very proud of MOOT which represents how form in trinity with material properties can result in a sophisticated balance of anatomical human organic design and bio engineered single skin surface in composites” Ross Lovegrove 2015.

Die Neue Sammlung Museum is considered the world’s first design museum. Today, with some 100,000 objects from the fields of industrial design, modern applied arts and graphic design, this state museum boasts a permanent collection which is one of the world’s largest design collections and is one of the leading museums dealing with this subject for the 20th and 21st centuries.
