BE WATER kinetic lamp: a multi-awarded lighting experience

Hypnotic and inspirational, BE WATER Lamp is a multi-awarded recessed kinetic decorative LED lamp, designed by Fernando Correa, creative director of WAW COLLECTION

BE WATER is a decorative lamp that transmits the sense of water, as reflected waves are projected onto a wall. 

When you stare at it, your mind concentrates on the movement and follows it, when out comes another movement repeating itself conveying a sense of relaxation and well-being.

The light emitted by the lamp, through refraction, passes through the deformed borosilicate glass cylinder that rotates on its axis by means of a motor and thus projects upward fluctuating flares of light in continuous movement.

This effect can be created with projections but the problem is to prevent the shadows of people. So it is necessary to reduce the distance between source and target to prevent this.

I figured out a cylinder was the shape we needed. The round surface would repeat itself turning on its central axis and could be placed along a wall, giving us continuity.” says Fernando Correa, founder of WAW Collection.

The final effect is that of sunlight reflections which, breaking on the surface of the water, create dancing optical games on the surfaces they touch.

The lamp consists of a motor block unit, an anodized aluminum base support module with LED light source and one of cylindrical borosilicate glass with a handmade irregular surface, which makes each product different and unique.

To create the desired effect, it is necessary to guinsert it inside a luminous groove grazing the wall.

I find inspiration in everyday life, many things inspire me in nature and the simplest things attract me. I’ve always been attracted by the soothing and hypnotic effect the sunlight reflected on the moving surface of water makes against vertical walls specially under bridges.” explains Fernando.

BE WATER Lamp can be purchased from a minimum of one to a maximum of six modules for motor, depending on the desired length.

The applications of BE WATER lamp

The house and all its spaces, thanks to BE WATER Lamp, become a window to the outside world that invites a moment of contemplation and meditation, to linger and to reflect where light and its suggestions are the protagonists.

Nature thus becomes indoor, it comes to life within a familiar environment, awakening the senses and psychophysical balance, transmitting feelings of well-being that involves the body and mind.

A moving light effect emitted by a hidden body that transforms and characterizes the surrounding environment, capable to be adapted within the world of wellness, hotels, restaurants, suitable for reception and waiting areas.

Other possible chromatic variants emitted by the lamp’s original effect of water are made possible with color-filter accessories:

  • BE FIRE with the ardor of its flames
  • BE AIR represented by the phenomenon of the northen lights (aurora borealis)
  • BE EARTH inspired by lavender fields in Provence

Each is able to create a sensorial experience within the environment that hosts it, inviting you to immerse yourself completely in the contemplative suggestions of relaxation and well-being.
