If you don’t posses the willpower to put your smart phone down once and for all, this lamp will give you that extra nudge — that is, if you don’t want to walk around in the dark. Tranquillo, created by industrial designer Avid Kadam, is “an interactive piece of lighting where the user’s phone acts like a switch.” Basically, if you want to see, you’ll need to put your phone on the dock, where it’ll go into do-not-disturb mode.
Kadam decided on a desk lamp because he wanted to focus on work productivity related to cell phone interruptions and distractions. Along these lines, he chose a minimal, yet practical silhouette. It can operate in Focus Mode (turned on by the phone) or Ambiance Mode, where the lamp is removed from its frame and becomes transportable. Learn more about Tranquillo here.
