GEO Magnetic Ditches Digital Switches in Favor of Science

The GEO Magnetic is probably one of the first lights I've seen that really uses science for a design concept.

Korean designer Hyungwoo Uhm created the stylish GEO Magnetic, which uses electromagnetism to adjust the head of the lamp. Instead of twisting and turning to get the proper illumination, you're actually sliding up and down to achieve your desired effect. This concept primarily has two main functions. When it's in the upward position, it's a regular lamp like any other. As you slide it down to the base, its purpose is to provide a romantic ambient setting with loved ones.

I love the whole concept behind the GEO Magnetic lights because it really sets itself apart from other lamps on the market. The halo look is an absolute plus to this truly original design.
