Here’s a product that just embodies the aspects of sensible design. Meet the Illumiknobi (jury’s out on the name), a glowing knob that begins emitting light when it senses you’re near it. The doorknob runs for an entire year on a single coin-cell battery and comes with a proximity sensor that transforms it into an ambient guiding light, helping you locate doorknobs in the dark… so you’re not fiddling around looking for handles, or worse, banging your shin against furniture or possibly tripping over your cat.
Love the idea but maybe they could ditch the ‘hole-cluster design’ for something more universally aesthetic. An arabesque pattern, stars, or rays of light perhaps?
