pow - pow lamp

PRODUCT & INTERACTION DESIGN

Pow - Pow is a lamp which “deconstructs” itself while the light is on. The main
objective is to produce a conscious action when the user needs to turn on the light.

THE PROBLEM

Many times, users leave the lights on from rooms they are not using....

unconscious action....

Light is easy to turn on, but it is hard to remember to turn it off

how to create consciouness about how long we have our lights on?

THE CONCEPT

Pow - Pow divides the time that it is ON, into small units.

When the light is ON, the blocks start to pop about slowly.

In other to have extra minutes of light, the blocks can be pop in. When all the blocks are out, the light will be OFF.

A relationship between more blocks means less time of light ON is created to develop a consciousness about the amount of time the light has been used.
