a Light for Monsters

A lighting piece that explores the conventional placing of switches on floor lamps. There are two touch switches that are linked together, neither at an aesthetically comfortable position.

The heights of the switches are based on the heights of monsters (in my opinion they are either tall or short). The switches are linked to allow either monster turn the light on and off.

After use of the prototype the lower switch was found useful when sitting down on a chair or couch.
