get connected + stay in touch
The first international trade show for a long time led us to Las Vegas. Thanks to all for coming by at our booth!
we are very proud of our first award in the category technology.
Thanks to eleven design - Paul Collison - for using 7 DDBs at the australian contribution for the Eurovision Song Contest this year!

we are happy to announce that we are cooperating with syncronorm so you can use the Desk Dough® Beam in Depence2 for show control and visualization
testing some soundcard options for the sound2light input and developing the connection between sound2light and presets
due to restrictions in fact of the pandemic we built a miniature setup for testing the Desk Dough® Beam virtually. A tiny projector (150lm), a bit of haze and some playmobil figures are waiting for you to create some stunning beams.
we are programming the new webinterface (after the first version for the prototypes) with a lot of more functions regarding
restart and update functions
after defining the dmx-protocol for the Desk Dough® we are now starting to build the fixture profiles for several lighting desks.
we are preparing the first 20 prototypes for giving them to companioned lighting designers in Germany, USA and Australia who supported us during the developing phase
working on new functionalities and the dmx-protocol to make it readable as a protocol as of any other lighting fixture but prepared for future aspects.
After trying out some display options we decided to ship the Desk Dough® Beam with an ePaper Display. You don't have to label the devices with the current ip-address or start channel on a piece of gaffa - the most important informations remain on the display after you powered-off the device. Even after months (or years, we are figuring that out). By the way it is saving electricity. The display itself is protected with gorilla-glas.
And we have buttons - for navigating through the menu and giving you a haptic and audible click-feedback.
we have discussed a lot about how we can make the connections lockable and what connectors to use. We decide to build-in a IEC C13 socket instead of a PowerCon. Why? Because you can find a C13-cable all over the world, in every venue (at least at the PC in the office), in the market around the corner or in your hotel room. It is a standard cable you can find everywhere and there is also a lockable version. We tested it!
integrating Art-Net and preparing integration of sACN
as small as possible but a maximum performance.
these are the first tiny hardware-components.
but the performance is not satisfactory.
we have to keep looking.
first tests and programming at the loop light Office.
getting to the bottom of creating beams.
what is digital lighting?
overcoming mechanical limits
transforming mechanical showlighting products into the digital world
taking beams to the next level
Our vision is to shape and modify beams with an easy and controllable desk functionality. Set up organic looks as easy as controlling any other fixture and fitted to
YOUR creative needs.
At the end of 2019 we started to bring our vision to real life.
