Heng Balance Lamp
Winner of the Red Dot Design Award 2016, Heng Balance Lamp is a series of lamps with a “balance” function that reinvents how lamps are switched on. Framed by what is inspired by the Chinese window, Heng Balance Lamp combines the old and new, by introducing a never-seen-before switch. Switching on and off in mid-air, the Heng Balance represents a new epoch in lighting and bringing a gentle warmth to any space it lights up.
The two balls in the wooden frames function as the lamp switches. To switch on the lamp, the user pulls the resting lower ball upwards. The two balls will be drawn together magnetically and suspend in the air for a little while. When they reach a state of balance, the circuit connects and the lamp turns on. To switch off the lamp, one simple pulls the lower ball back down.
Light wood and dark wood (beech wood) versions come in 3 different shapes: Ellipse, Square and Round.
For a modern feel, the Heng Balance Lamp Ellipse also comes also in red, black and white plastic coating instead of beech wood.
