Allocacoc DesignNest has this month launched their new Reddot award-winning lamp via the Kickstarter crowdfunding website with the aim of raising the €10,000 they require to take it into production.
The unique lamp is equipped with a midair switch breaking away from traditional on off clickers and in-line switches normally associated with a desk or table lamp. The unique design offers a functional LED light which has been constructed from wood and a midair switch which is triggered by moving the two spheres close together.
Watch the video below to learn more about the lamps unique design,
HENG lamp has a switch structure of two balls inside the wooden frames with embedded magnets. By moving them, these magnets will attract one another, thereby triggering the switch. The two balls are the switches of the lamps. By lifting the lower ball up, it will draw the two balls together with each other’s magnets inside. First they will flow in the air and when they reach a balance, the light will switch on.
The HENG lamp has an attractive curved design, it creates the illusion of light passing through the wooden structure.
The most magical element of this lamp would be the switch. Two wooden balls function as the light switch. Once you pick up the lower ball and put it near the upper one, the two balls will find a balance and levitate in the middle of the lamp. Once the balance is reached, the lamp switches on. The design has an easy structure, which makes it easy for volume production. HENG is already in the prototype stage and will be ready to be brought into the market.
Because we want you to feel close to nature, we selected high-quality wood to manufacture the Heng Lamp.
