The Munich based company Blickfeld made their first ever appearance at CES with their own stand, located in the Smart City sector, in 2020. Given the limited resources and space available, the focus of our design is on creating a central back wall. The individually folded mirror elements take up the core functional principle of a lidar scanner and reinterpret the company’s corporate design.
Each mirror surface is aligned to an individual point along an imaginary line at eye level. When the viewer moves along this line, he sees himself in a particular sequence depending on the direction of his movement. The sequencing of the reflections in rows, columns, and the bundling on a point is borrowed from the scanning procedure of the MEMS lidar technology, letting the visitor experience the company’s core technology playfully. All 220 elements are folded from flat mirror material. The “focal points” of the surfaces require individual cuts for all elements. The high-precision CNC production and systematic labeling of the substructure and all individual segments made the creation of plans superfluous, as each part only fits in a certain orientation and in one place. The assembly without visible fixings is reversible and could be carried out error-free within 48 hours by the team of Blickfeld.
