The Heng Balance Lamp Illuminates with a Suspended Magnetic Switch

Designer Arthur Limpens' solution was the Heng Balance Lamp, that relies on a pair of magnets suspended on strings to pull an internal switch.

Seeking a novel way to redesign a light switch while simultaneously retaining a functional and aesthetically pleasing object was the design challenge for Netherlands-based designer Arthur Limpens of Allocacoc DesignNest. His solution was the Heng Balance Lamp, a fun desktop light that relies on a pair of magnets suspended on strings to pull an internal switch.
