When Lamp and Switch become one


Ed Heritage’s Roll and Tilt lamps explore a unique interaction. The lamps don’t have switches, but rather ARE switches. Designed with a seesaw-esque base, the lamps literally tilt backwards and forwards. The minute the side with the light on it touches the base, it lights up, indicating that the light has been switched on. In doing so, the lamp removes the switch, or rather removes the concept of a boring switch that usually can be a jarring design detail that doesn’t go well with the rest of the product. By reinventing that flip-on-flip-off interaction into something that’s more playful, the Roll and Tilt lamps become much more interesting lighting solutions!
