Switch Light

by Jill on November 21, 2013

Switch Light by UNIVERSAL PROGRAM is an object with no defined top or bottom in a traditional sense. This is because it has two functional sides, one to receive light and one to emit light. During the day, the photovoltaic solar panel gathers light by the window side providing enough power for a few hours of soft light for the evening.

The name refers to its switching functions, but also to the object as the physical switch. To operate the button-less device, the form is turned over and a tilt switch — hidden in the object — turns the light on. The result is a liberated experience where light is free to move around the home or outdoors, because there is no cable physically attaching it to a socket or wall.

The construction is a composition of three main elements, a satin polypropylene housing, an acrylic lens and the ABS inner core, which holds the electronic components. The size is large enough to cast a pleasing amount of light while being small enough for a child to turn over with their hands.
