Life in Balance

bosung_concept_001

This delicate arc of light subtly communicates in-home daily electricity consumption

by loosing its balance when users exceed a predetermined limit. Slowly but subtly,

balance is lost and regained yet again. Ideally, overtime, user behavior changes and

the light is kept in a state of balance. This design makes use of existing technologies

in order to spark dialogue between the user, the lamp, and its energy source.

Life in Balance is connected to a homeowner’s wireless network and allows the user

to set the electricity gauge daily, weekly, and monthly; this usage pattern is then

automatically communicated to the utilities company.

METAMORPHOSIS attempts to create a playful and adjustable light source within a domestic or commercial space. Metamorphosis proposes a new structure of hanging light which can allows the direction of light to be altered. By pulling down the weight on the string, the lighting structure rotates in 200 degrees. The counter weights enable it to remain in different configurations and users can transform the mood of the space.
