Tilt was designed as part of my final major project Controling Light that I did for my Masters degree in Product + Furniture design. The project is an exploration into how we interact with lights in our lives, with the intention of designing lights that have a more intimate and joy evoking relationship with there user.

Tilt was designed as part of my final major project in Product & Furniture design at the Kingston school of Art.

The project titled Controlling Light aimed to discover a more intimate way for a user to interact with a light, with the goal of achieving a healthy materialism between object and user, a materialism that encourages the user to cherish there possessions instead of treating them as disposable.


Tilt on / off

To turn Tilt on the user must tilt the lamp on it axis causing a switch inside to connect the current to an LED light source. The ball bearing acts as a handle for the user as-well as a counter weight for the balance of the lamp.

Construction of Tilt

Tilt is made from black stained Ash timber, hand blown glass and a steel ballbearing. The Ash was cut from a single piece of timber using a CNC machine.

The development of Tilt


50 Way’s of Light

At the beginning of the project I rapid prototyped 50 ideas of what a light could be, it was from this that the concept of Tilt was born.
