LIMOGES, France, June 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
At "Futur en Seine", the 5th edition of the International Digital Festival, Legrand presents their newest visionary project, Flocoon. This family of conceptual products creates a new relationship between home controls and end users and offers a simple and intuitive experience through gentle gestures.
Electric commands enter a new era
Like a concept car, the Flocoon family of home controls shows the direction of future. Technology takes back stage and gives space to an intuitive interactive experience where the focus is on the relationship between human and product.
The fluid design of the objects suggests the user to interact with natural gestures through intuitive shapes. Dressed with a soft silicone they invite to be touched. The controls themselves offer simple basic functionalities that can then be enhanced through the use of a smart phone or tablet.
Inspired by nature, the Flocoon family creates a new design language for home controls. They become a kind of a second skin that delicately dresses the walls. They offer a natural and easy interface that blends seamlessly together with the lifestyle of today.
A variety of futuristic products
The Flocoon family gives freedom to the user to place the commands anywhere they want : on the wall, on furniture, in wet spaces …Each product has a specific shape related to its functionality:
PAD - A gentle tap on the surface of the product is enough to activate the control.
UP-DOWN - an intuitive dimmer control that not only works as an on | off control, but offers a smooth dimming functionality through a sliding motion.
WARM-ME - an intuitive thermostat that responds to natural gestures. To warm up a space, the user needs to cover the control for a moment with their hand to indicate that they desire a slight increase in temperature. If the need is to cool down the area, they can gently blow on the surface.
SKY-VIEW - the ultimate mood enhancer of any space. This unit can project animated images on the ceiling of the space to reflect the weather outside or liven up the atmosphere of a special event by abstract images according to the theme.
MASTER TREE - The branches of the tree connect to different spaces of the home and can be individually controlled. At the root of the tree lies the master switch that can turn all controls on and off all at once.
