Hirosaki Apple Design Award 2017

Apple's light

Apple's light by GOMA from japan

designer's own words:

This apple 's light is a disaster light. There are threats of tsunami, earthquake, missiles in Japan, it is a situation that you do not know when the power outage will occur. In such a case, we devised that if anyone could easily put on and healed.In the event of a disaster people will go to evacuation centers with this light. There is a simple apple tree at the evacuation shelter, and we will hang the glowing apple on that tree. An apple tree shining in the event of a power outage will become a landmark, and will undermine the anxious feeling due to disasters.Currently working with Japanese electronics manufacturers to produce prototypes. I am considering mass production.
