Student creates an adult bedroom accessory that draws on intuitive design.
Nightlights might seem like something only children would use, but with the right design they can add something to even the most mature adult’s bedroom. The Prism Nightlight was inspired by Naoto Fukasawa, and designed by Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) student Nicholas Baker as part of a class project.
This particular bedroom accessory drew on Fukasawa’s philosophy that we all have common ways in which we interact with objects, most of which can be translated into design terms, and therefore create more intuitive pieces of work that we can operate without a second thought.
Made from wood and glass, all that’s required to operate the night light is a simple tilting motion. Even though the design is intuitive, it was also a one-time project, which means there are no plans for it to go into production any time soon. That means for the time being, you might have to stick to a more childish design if you’re on the market for a nightlight.
