I started getting very interested in the graffiti installations and throwie LEDs that were used as street art. I wanted to incorporate the idea into something more functional and interactive. I call it the Throwlampthrowpy in which LED throwies are thrown into a lamp shade with a magnetic bottom to light up. The package that the lamp comes inside of is made from craft paper and meant to be ripped apart. On the inside one would find the pieces that are needed to assemble the lamp as well as 16 LEDs to light up the lamp. The instructions on how to build the lamp are also printed on the inside of the packaging.







My Egger

The Egger is a plush toy/pillow that holds a egg yolk/white. The egg yolk lights up when the switch is pressed. This project was put together using Brown,white, and yellow felt that is doubled up and stuffed after sewing. The egg yolk and white fit inside of the egg shell. This plush toy can also be used to educate children at a young age what is inside of an egg.

Glowing Purse

The Glow Purse is a gorgeously simple idea from designers Kawamura & Ganjavian: a hand bag with micro-LEDs lining the insides that begin to glow when you look for your keys. It’s just a concept, unfortunately, and this idea would really be most successful was some sort of easy, DIY mod, but there is a sort of purity of the fusing between fashion, practicality and technology.
