The background story

It must have been the sixties when I first familiarised myself with film, predominantly with the technology behind it. In the village where I lived, right at the German border, the cinema was called “Hotel Industrie”. Besides news broadcasts and movies of which I do not remember anything, the cinema hosted dance evenings and sports demonstrations. Right there, my little brother effortlessly floored world judo champion Anton Geesink.
In 1963, the building was temporarily vacated, and we boys could easily explore the spaces. Through a ditch and a tunnel into the building, we could enter the screening room. There was a projection cabin in the back that we weren’t usually allowed to enter. A layer of dust covered two Philips projectors; impressive grey machines with lights, lenses and wheels. My love for technology was born there.

It took me some more time to find my love for cinema. It wasn’t until one day I drove back and forth to my parents’ house to record Kings of the Road. The West Deutsche Rundfunk, which broadcasted Wim Wenders’ film, could only be received in the East of the country. It must have been 1975. The story is about a repairman of projectors who tours along the Polish-German border on a truck, witnessing the downfall of movie theatres. Nowadays, we’re seeing an increase in screening rooms, but unfortunately the magical grey machines with reels, sprockets, carbon lamps and transparent film will most probably be forever in the past.
During my studies in Industrial Design in Delft, film kept pulling me, as a result of which I lost myself to the intangible medium. I have been working as an editor and director for nearly forty years of my life, only to return to designing a couple of years ago. To me, film is STILL MOVING.

The LED 70mm IMAX lamp

STILL MOVING is a LED luminaire, shaded sideways by a filmstrip of either 35 or 70 mm, depending on the size of the lamp. The downward light is dimmable: a wonderful light source for a table, a counter, a hall etc. By standard there is a selection of five color films from the collection of the EYE Filmmuseum in Amsterdam. For the IMAX version there are two extra films. Customizing possible.

The films are a mix of documentary and feature films, from the Netherlands and elsewhere. The story of each movie is summarized in a circulating strip of 35 mm or 70 mm film that is 36 up to 60 frames long.

The film moves along slowly, every minute it transports the 'story' one frame by means of a microcontroller and a stepper motor, so the image of the luminaire changes over time.


35 mm, length 1100 mm and 50 mm wide, 60 frames
70 mm, length 1200 mm and 100 mm wide, 36 frames
70 mm, length 1700 mm and 100 mm wide, 50 frames

Intensity of the (dimmable) light is about 4000 lumen/m
