Douglas Cushing’s concept twists the archetypical flashlight on its head quite literally! Designed with a desire to stray away from the predictability of current products, the Heavy Utility Flashlight features a twisting head that turns the light source on and off.
As easy as a switch might be, it’s also a cinch to operate, especially in the dark. Rather than fumble around with your fingers trying to locate the button, you can quickly guide your hand to either end and give it a small twist to activate. To stay similar but different, its shape is also new. Unlike the cylindrical form of standard designs, it takes on a rectilinear shape that keeps it from rolling away. Its straightforward aesthetic is just as minimalistic as its functionality!
