12 : 03 : 2015 Balance Lamp : Weng Xinyu : Weimar

Bauhaus University, Weimar – A new lamp designed to make people concentrate is among the latest products created to help us switch off from our phones.

  • Supports digital downtime
  • Meaningfully counterbalances the analogue with the digital

Designed by Weng Xinyu, the Balance lamp switches on when a phone is placed in its frame and turns itself off when the phone is removed. Flitting between tasks and being distracted by our phones is a pervasive problem for contemporary consumers. With this lamp, whether working or reading a book, the design’s prescriptive functionality removes that temptation.

The Big Picture: As time spent using technology rises, consumers are seeking digital downtime. We profile this in more detail in our JOMO microtrend about the Joy Of Missing Out.
