This is without doubt one of the most vivacious lighting fixtures we have featured in the past. The Luminarium, designed by Stefano Pertegato of Milano, Italy, is inspired by the recent studies about the biologic effects of lighting, especially with respect to modern living environments. The Luminarium does a 12 hour lighting cycle, in which an indirect emission (reflected by the ceiling and taken by mixing three different T2 fluorescent lamps) changes color temperature throughout the day. The soothing morning light (3000°K) gradually gets cold until it gets to 6000°K in the afternoon. It later turns warm again to highlight the natural sunset. With the changing color temperature, the dynamic LED spotlight illustrates a slight movement in the environment and a light halo depicts the hardly noticeable changes in the surroundings.

Designer team of Jens Sievert, Nuno Oliveira and Paulo Fernandes wanted to create something unique inspired by the rich history of Portugal, and the upshot of their idea is the beautiful Valuma chair.
