VARA - app-controlled light
As product designers, we always wanted to find the magic point where analogue operations trigger digital actions. We became obsessed with finding ways to make human interactions with household objects a more sensory and joyful experience. And that’s how VARA was born. To make controlling your lighting fun.
VARA works with a new interaction technology that means you can control every single LED via your smartphone. You can create myriad different light situations with just a touch or a swipe on our bespoke app. You and your smartphone (iOS or Android) can create unique lighting effects, leave notifications, save and play preloaded lighting scenarios and monitor your energy consumption.
VARA is plug and play, so you can use it immediately out of the box. It’s designed to be modular, so you can build up components around your home and individual style – a super-slim LED strip and base module can be augmented to become a table lamp, floor lamp, pendant light, shelf light, integrated light etc. You can build up groups of lights to suit your needs.
There’s no switch needed, so you can control VARA from wherever you are in the home or office, thanks to Bluetooth and Wifi connections. VARA also saves up to 80 per cent of the energy of traditional lighting systems, so you can save on your consumption, and monitor via our custom-made app.
To make VARA’s design sensory, we selected the most suitable components and materials, the most pleasing surfaces and the most skilful means of processing. It’s part of our core values that VARA is produced to a masterful degree of quality by specialized companies in close proximity to the design and development team. Expert hands turn an idea into a product that meets the highest German standards of operation and finish.
