An unforgettable reading lamp

PhD candidate Matthias Laschke and professor Marc Hassenzahl at the Folkwang University of the Arts in Germany created Pleasurable Troublemakers, a collection of household goods designed to encourage physical interaction. Their Forget Me Not reading lamp, which is in the prototype phase, is surrounded by flower-like petals that close over time, dimming the light. To get brighter light back, you’ll have to touch one of the petals to re-open the lamp.
