Ingo Maurer develops app for smart light control

Operating, dimming, selecting lighting scenes – with “Ingo Maurer Digital”, Ingo Maurer GmbH presents its app for smart control of lamps. The app is available for free download for iOS and Android in the App Store and the Google Play Store.

The first lamp that can be operated with the “Ingo Maurer Digital” app is the MOODMOON model by designer Sebastian Hepting. The lamp is distinguished by its characteristic interplay of the finest Japanese paper and innovative LED technology. The app makes it possible to reproduce different lighting moods and colour gradients at a defined speed. Users can choose between 14 different light moods, relaxing or invigorating colour gradients. The brightness of the dimmable lamp can also be individually regulated via the app. Thanks to the special structure of the Japanese paper, the lighting effect of the MOODMOON gives it a uniquely lively surface.

“With the app, users bring their lamp to life,” emphasises David Engelhorn, designer at Ingo Maurer. “The atmosphere in the room can be changed effortlessly via the smartphone or tablet. Whether it’s for a place of relaxation or a concentrated work situation, the lamp can be adapted to individual needs with the help of the variably usable tool.”

Thanks to its smart operation, MOODMOON is an innovative, charismatic companion from the private sphere to commercial use: its colour gradients provide the desired relaxation in medical practices and wellness areas or set a stylistic accent in hotel lobbies, retail areas or public facilities. Users can integrate and save several MOODMOON lamps in the Ingo Maurer app and control them individually and run them in parallel. As the lamp emits its own WLAN, it can also be controlled via the app in places where there is no internet, such as on a mountain hut or on a yacht.

The Ingo Maurer team is constantly developing the app further so that it will also offer future products and projects a wide range of possible applications for individual lighting control. In future, it will be possible to link several lamps, even across different rooms, via WLAN in order to combine colour gradients simultaneously or with variable dynamics. Individual mood packages, for example in desired CI colours, will also be available for projects on request. Regular updates will inform end customers about the latest functions of the app.
