Pluck & Hug MK1

2014

ABOUT THIS PROJECT

Pluck and Hug, an evolution from the Dive into a Glass of Champagne project, ┬áis an unusual take on lighting. Each piece consists of a pendant and sphere, with users invited to pluck the later from the former and give it a squeeze. With each squeeze the sphere glows – the harder you hug the brighter it shines. Pluck and Hug is an exploration in moveable lighting; once plucked each sphere can be taken to and placed anywhere you like in your home.

HOW IT WORKS

Inside each light is an altitude sensor which measures the pressure. The increased pressure from a hug causes the light to get brighter.
