DimmensoA portable emotional lighting system
The challenge is to create a lamp that is not only a typical object that the user has on the table, but an experience: light intensity can be adjusted by opening the lid of the lamp, you can carry the lamp wherever it is needed, place it vertically, horizontally or hanging it on the wall.
A portable emotional lighting system consisting of a base and an upper part. When the upper part is open, the light switches on and increases its intensity as the lid is opened further: like a treasure chest that opens to reveal sparkling treasure. The lighting system consists of an RGB LED panel and the base could include a wireless charger too. The project will produce a prototype, fully functional, portable DIMMENSO lamp, with RGB LED panel and wireless charger.
The company, founded by Maurizio Amato in 2018, designs and manufactures furnishing accessories, in particular solid surface materials (Corian, Hi-Macs) and wood.

A couple of years ago, a short scene in a film had an incredible visual impact on me. I was watching a film at home with my wife. A chest was opened which revealed a long sought after treasure. As the lid of the chest was slowly lifted, a dazzling light gradually lit up the entire room.
At that moment, this made me think about a lamp design which could replicate a similar visual situation (reproduce a similar visual effect) – that of the treasure chest could be gradually opened and the light would gradually fill the room but as a modern, multi-functional design.
Dimmenso is a multifunctional lamp: in addition to creating a unique lighting experience, it is a useful every day object thanks to its wireless charger and its in-built Bluetooth speakers for connecting to the radio or listening to music. It can be used in the workplace or at home, being equipped with an internal battery which allows you to easily transfer it from one room to another without unplugging or even to use outside the home eg. garden, caravan; thanks to it’s compact size you can even take it during your trips.
THE BIRTH OF THE PROJECT:
Dimmenso’s idea had been in my mind for some time but I had not yet found the right moment to bring it to life. Worth Partnership Project gave me this opportunity by allowing me to find the partner I was looking for and believing in the project.
THE CREATIVE PROCESS:
It was clear from the beginning, our aim was to produce a simple beautiful lamp which is compact, portable and practical. Features include a wireless charger, Bluetooth speakers and an internal battery.
The challenge was finding the right internal components to maintain the small dimensions of the original design and make all the parts coexist without interference of any type. It was solved with a lot of research in finding the right suppliers and collaborators. Now we understand why Dimmenso is a unique object.
Qhub Lightec Europe is a Latvian company specialized in signboards and visual advertising materials. They were decisive for both the birth and the development of Dimmenso: their LumiSheet TM technology immediately attracted us and give a boost to this project which was ready to be born. LumiSheet TM is a unique LED material which allows lighting installation of any size, shape, brightness and spectrum Having a low thickness lighting system was an indispensable requirement for the design. It was fundamental in developing this part with their assistance. In the future, we hope to collaborate again with them on other lighting projects.
The challenges which we faced and overcame with the realization of DIMMENSO will certainly give life to other ideas which at this point in time are only in an embryonic state.
We also believe that Worth Partnership Project gives us the visibility and the opportunity to expand our horizons especially in the European countries.
Collaboration with other realities opens up new paths, opens the mind to solutions that we had not thought of, helps the growth of the projects and of the whole company.
