‘tiktiktik’ lamp

‘tiktiktik’ is a lamp for those who otherwise normally forget to turn off the light.
pulling down on ‘tiktiktiks’ chain sets the length of time the light is on.
the further you pull, the longer the lamp remains illuminated.
the lamp retracts silently a few minutes before the timer runs out.
the lights then dim and turn off.

‘puzzle’ alarm clock

play with time, or at least our alarm clock.
‘puzzle’ makes it fun to set your alarm clock by letting you manipulate the numbers yourself.
constructed as a wooden box, the front face has four digits that are flush against the face.
you physically arrange the strokes of the digital numbers in order to set the time on your alarm.
once it is correctly set, the alarm icon lights up in the corner of the face.
