LIETECH is the experience of a positive technological illusion,
as if the “virtual lamps” where to represent the disembodiment,
the runaway souls of all the existing physical lamps. LIETECH the resurrection of a physical object.

LIETECH is a “virtual lamp” product concept
that can be downloaded and installed according
to a specific device (mobile/tablet/desktop/Tv).
Users can browse and choose the desired lamp design according to their context, for example, a Venetian chandelier for a romantic dinner.
Two-dimensional lamp design.
Lamps can adapt to individual environment.
Lamps can be derived from the physical world.
Light intensity can be controlled through a dimmer function.
RGB color selection for different atmospheres.
Different lamps are designed for all devices.
LIETECH takes advantage of precisely this intuition to respond to a much larger demand, with a project endowed with aesthetic dignity and additional power to communicate.
The “virtual lamps” are studied according to the platforms on which they will be seen. For instance, we can have a small candle or a match on the screen of an iPhone, easily turned off with a finger, just like in real life. A lantern could take up the screen of a tablet, a lampshade with a retro look could be turned on by virtually pulling on a portable string. On a PC, a designer’s lamp, or a majestic chandelier of Murano glass on the television’s flat screen hanging on the wall of the living room. In other words, a light for each platform and for each occasion, without restrictions for its use (no one will ever deny you a grand chandelier of delicately crafted glass in miniature form on a tiny cell phone!) LIETECH, then, also turns into a game. Indeed, the playful element of the project and the simplicity of its interface, make LIETECH easily accessible and completely remove any obstacle for those few who still resist the omnipotence of technology. Simple idea, simple use. Consider how romantic it could be, in the absence of moonlight, to kiss in a car with the glow of candle light. Or how comforting it could be to gently caress a child who woke up afraid of the dark, leaving an animated digital light on her bedside table to fight off scary thoughts. Through LIETECH, our digital devices become a vehicle for a new way of being social. We could even talk about a “new technological emotivity”. Indeed, the power of the digital era should also be channeled to discover new ways of emoting - a sort of contemporary miracle. LIETECH fills space with its being, its mere presence, and provides an additional value to all our screen devices that only live and make sense when turned on. A computer on standby would hold no poetry if it weren’t for LIETECH. In this new conception, design needs to and will have to increasingly take into consideration more than virtual platforms, mixing and interacting with them to fully express their potentials and optimize their wastes.
