Are you bored by the traditional way to switch a lamp on or off? Are you looking for an innovative desk lamp that still functions like it is supposed to? Seeking a novel way to redesign a light switch while simultaneously retaining a functional and aesthetically pleasing object was the design challenge. Inventive solution was the Heng Balance Lamp, a fun desktop light that relies on a pair of magnets suspended on strings to pull an internal switch. This design concept won a Red Dot Design Award last year, and It’s a new and interactive way to brighten up your room!
The most magical element of this lamp would be the switch. Two wooden balls function as the light switch. Once you pick up the lower ball and put it near the upper one, the two balls will find a balance and levitate in the middle of the lamp. Once the balance is reached, the lamp switches on. The design has an easy structure, which makes it easy for volume production. Heng is already in the prototype stage and will be ready for the market soon. They selected high-quality wood to manufacture the Heng Lamp. This will give a warm and natural appearance and is suitable for all types of rooms, like study, bedroom and living room.
Li Zanwen won the 2016 Red Dot Award and the Red Dot Award Best of the Best with the Heng Lamp. He feels that imagination is the secret of a steady stream of inspiration. Allocacoc’s factory and production facilities near Shanghai will be manufacturing and packaging the Heng Lamp . They will perform the final quality control to ensure that HENG lamp reaches you in the best condition possible.
