As a child, people told me to turn off the light whenever I left a room, because I should think of the polar bears. However, it always remained rather unclear how the polar bears at the North Pole would actually benefit from me flipping my light switch.

03. Watthour Table Lamp

The design of this lamp is inspired by an eggtimer and emphasizes on interactivity. By turning it anti-clockwise, it turns on. By looking at  the lines you can decide exactly how many Watthours of light you want to receive. After turning it on the lampshade turns back.

The lamp has a flow meter that measures the amount of energy that goes through, so when you mount an oldfashioned halogen bulb, it moves much quicker, than with a LED.
