The abundance of electronic devices in people's daily lives diminish their appreciation and care for the use of electricity; the okay?! reading lamp reminds people that electric energy isn't unlimited. It comes at a cost. Many people easily forget this.

Created by German designer Philipp Käfer, the okay?! reading lamp boasts a base with a range of sockets. People are encouraged to plug in any device that require charging. The catch, however, is that the more devices that are plugged in, the dimmer the light gets. Kafer writes, "Electric energy comes out of a socket and we can have as much as we want. So, it is no wonder that we let several things run at the same time, without thinking twice about it, even if we don’t need anything else but enough light to read a book."
