From private spaces like living rooms, dining rooms, and bedrooms to public spaces like shops and public facilities, various demands are made of light in our everyday lives.

In creating "Nod", Daisuke Kitagawa considered how smart lighting can be more flexible, responding to various scenes. While the light seems as simple as to appear to be nothing unusual upon first glance, it has the special feature of a slit in the shade. As such, the angle of the shade can be freely changed from top to bottom, resulting in the ability to direct light in any direction, 360°. While this function is not uncommon these days in lights, most of them have an exposed hinge mechanism.

"Nod" covers the mechanism through its slit, resulting in a smart change to the lighting environment and an atmosphere rich in expression.
