klemens schillinger's offline lamp transmits light in exchange for phone respite

product designer klemens schillinger transforms the act of flicking a switch and gives his latest lighting design a little more purpose. the ‘offline lamp’ turns on only after you have mustered the strength to give up your smartphone.

the offline lamp appears typical in its minimal, contemporary design but schillinger‘s creation does much more – it hopes to improve the quality of our time spent. the offline lamp features a black drawer integrated into its pedestal which acts like a magical chest, requesting a small object like a smartphone to be placed inside.

once the smartphone is locked inside the drawer, the light turns on reminding us that you only get as good as you give. in this case, you exchange electricity and trade in the often uncontrollable urge to check for new messages for a bit of light that invites you to read a book – a digital detox painted in a shade of green.
