Technology is advancing enough that devices can now be designed with much more intuitive and natural controls. The 'As Much as You Need' lamp does not have a standard switch or a dial to enable you to alter its settings; gestures are used interact with this light fixture.

The desk lamp has quite a futuristic form about it, with a long and slender frame that appears to cantilever impossibly across your work surface; the metallic arm extends into a horizontal track of LED lights with a touch-sensitive feature. Guide your index finger and your thumb along Hongkue Lee's illuminator, making pinching and spreading motions. A pair of hands can even overlap down the spine of the lamp, creating points of intensity or longer stretches of luminescent emission.
