A beautifully unified piece of design made from aluminium and opal glass.
The base is a faceted cylinder that works as both the light switch and the stem that holds the spherical glass light in place. Turning the base in a clockwise direction clicks the LED light on, with further rotation increasing the lumen output. This movement built into the design, allows the user to intuitively brighten or dim the light. The base comes in four anodised finishes: black, green, orange and natural aluminum. Turn On is a design made at human scale, effortlessly simple and pleasing to touch. Supplied with integrated LEDs and 3m cable.
Joel Hoff graduated from the Royal College of Art in London in 2014 with a Master in Design Products. His aim is to design objects for mass-production that do not fuel mass-consumption; to inspire people to own fewer things of greater quality that remain in use for longer. Through an understanding of manufacturing processes and their many different advantages and limitations, he wishes to foster longevity in terms of both materials and form.
