The ZipLight

When you get bored of your grandma’s clap on/clap off, bedside-lamp, give the ZipLight a chance. Designed by Shannon South, this circular, bag-like structure unzips to reveal fluorescent light.

It’s a soft, hanging lamp… that unzips when you want more brightness. The zipper is translucent so, when the light "zips" on, the zipper’s teeth glow blue.

Implications - Simple pieces that boast a quirky design as seen in the ZipLight provide a perfect balance between fun and function that the adult consumer can appreciate. Though most consumers have shed the lack of concern for logic that is often observed in youth, that does not mean they don't appreciate a little bit of fun.
