Designer Weng Xinyu from Berlin-based studio YUUE introduces Cappy, an interactive table lamp designed to create emotional bonds between humans and daily objects. To switch on the light, users can simply lift the cap-shaped lampshade, as if they were playfully teasing a romantic interest. To switch off the light, all they have to do is tap on the lamp gently.

Cappy is composed of a cap-shaped lampshade and a geometric base, all made of plastic. The functional table lamp can add an eye-catching contemporary element to any interior setting, while it can also charge your smartphone wirelessly. It is available in different colors, with black, white, grey, and even dark red accents.

 

With this project, Weng Xinyu of studio YUUE intended to create a fun, interactive lighting product that responds directly to the human touch. When switched off, Cappy’s hat hangs low making the lamp appear shy and closed-off. When approached and touched by the user, Cappy instantly illuminates, as if it were an actual person that is excited to see you. This expressive design is what makes users feel as if the lamp has real feelings, thus encouraging them to form a closer bond with it.
