Can something as mundane as switching a light on and off become a remarkable experience in itself? Designer Jesper Eriksson certainly thinks so. In a project titled "A State of Transformation" he constructed a series of lights with dramatically outsized handles for switches which invite users to touch and fondle. The extra effort required to turn the lights on and off gives the users a satisfying sense of being in control, a wonderful reminder of the simple pleasure that touch and movement can bring.
Jesper Eriksson is a graduate of the Royal College of Art (MA Design Products) and A State of Transformation is part of his graduation project.
The JWDA concrete lamp from Menu features a tactile brass switch on a concrete base which looks great and is easy to use. The petal-shaped shades of the Cape pendant light from Moustache can be turned to create different shapes and light effects.
We love the outsized handles of the Double O ice bucket from Ghidini 1961, beautifully made in cast brass. Looking for fun interactive accessories? The Desktructure desk tidy from Seletti is stylish, fun and very practical.
