In 2015, Shade was founded to challenge the way we use and interact with light. To achieve that, Shade has established a tight collaboration with designer Øivind Slaatto to continuously develop the ØS1 smart lamp series, which combine cutting edge technology with Scandinavian design. Shade believes that design must be able to improve life to justify its existence and that’s the reason why the ØS1 is created to be fully adjustable in terms of light directions, intensity, temperature and colour.
The Shade exhibition is a study of interior lighting and the way people interact and benefit from personalized light settings. To really experience light we need to be aware and look at it in a completely different way and grasp the opportunities it gives us.
