Ario wanted a lamp design that would work with their adaptive smart light technology. After conducting market research, I identified an opportunity bridge the design gap between functional and aesthetic desk lamps.

The Rio lamp is designed to have the functional appeal of a task lamp while having the visual appeal of a decor lamp. The lamp can fold into a minimal shape when the user needs aesthetic lighting and expand to shine a direct spotlight when the user needs focused lighting.
