Just like our mom, this lamp will angry if we waste the electricity. It was designed by Weng Xinyu as his graduation project to create a series of products that are not so useful but have good intentioned messages inside. This lamp has a hand that will turn itself off if it’s too bright, if another lamp is already on, or if the user forgets about it. More description by Weng Xinyu:

“Good medicine tastes bitter.” said Confucius.
Although its taste is not so pleasant, at least it cures the disease. What’s more, it keep us awake.

Do products always have to satisfy the users? How can products that purposely made not so useful affect our perception and understanding of it? How can designers deliver ideas through products? In this project, I try to create a series of products that are not so useful but have good intentioned messages inside, as to explore the purpose and future of product design.

Angry Lamp is a human-like lamp with character. It keeps an eye on how people use energy. If it’s too bright, or if another lamp is already on, it will turn off immediately. It also turn off if the user forgets about it.
