Lighting and sound control, together with environmental sensors, define the first customizable outdoor technological system, able to adapt to the behaviour and needs of people and promote the well-being of interiors outside, too
Through the collaboration between Stefano Boeri Interiors and Targetti, IVY is the first outdoor and indoor lighting system integrating lighting control, sound and environmental sensors promoting human well-being and respect for the environment to optimize the integration with the architecture and maximum usability. The project was born from the idea of creating a system capable of encouraging outdoor activities and reproducing the comfort of interiors.
IVY is an organic system with multiple innovative configurations applied to the outdoor environment. Applicable on terraces, dehors, commercial activities, public spaces, and existing or new buildings. IVY is a technological track providing all the necessary tools for living, working, socializing and relaxing outdoors. The system allows the connection of accessories and devices useful for our daily life and direct and indirect user interaction: from synchronization with your smartphone for light control and management to music playback with dedicated speakers. A complete range of elements, from luminaires to sound diffusion or sensor accessories, creates the optimal conditions for living in outdoor spaces.
For the power supply, each element is safely housed in aluminium profiles that can be installed on the ceiling or wall, on the surface or recessed. Linear lights, projectors and suspensions allow you to design a dynamic, functional and surprising light landscape. There are three standard finishes – ferrite grey, black anodized and white – to which all the special RAL colours are added. Thanks to this flexibility, the user can build a customized system in composition and finishes capable of creating different scenarios. Sensors become an added value to the system: from the presence detector for energy management and optimization to the sensor for controlling the air quality of the surrounding environment. The entire system is controllable and adaptable to smartphones. IVY creates a new relationship between internal and external space. A redesign of multiple possibilities of outdoor living.
“Thanks to the different applications and configurations that the system can use, the real strength of IVY lies in its versatility and customization. With Targetti, we thought of a system that would adapt to the environments and needs without sacrificing formal elegance. The new IVY lighting system cancels the boundary between inside and outside, in terraces, dehors, courtyards, and public or private spaces. It redefines with grace and efficiency a new way to spend and share precious time in the open air” state the architects Giorgio Donà and Stefano Boeri co-founders of Stefano Boeri Interiors.
