io Lamp

quote.jpg

Inspired by a given quote about light, io lamp strives to convey its meaning through form and function. My interpretations of the quote focused on movement and the daring connotation of being able to beat the speed of light. io lamp is a sleep timer that provides a countdown to bed through decreasing levels of light. Light travels through the form, slowing down and dimming with each loop until the cycle ends. Named after the moon of Jupiter where the speed of light was first measured, io lamp incorporates the notion of light in motion as well as the challenge of beating the lamp to sleep.
