FLASHLIGHT

FOR THE UNCONVENTIONAL OFFICE

2016

2020 edit: Back in 2016, I thought of a future world where most people will work in unconventional offices, a thought that became a reality in 2020. As a result of the “work from home” approach in response to the global pandemic, the boundaries between home and office have blurred and our needs have changed. In this project, I identified the features needed for working in an improvised office and turned them into a compact device.

 

A portable light, designed for people who like to work outside the box. The idea for this product was born due to a need I detected for work outside a defined office and for the necessity of different lighting while working. The adaptable light enhances the interaction between the person and his computer by upgrading the computer to a complete portable workstation. In my study, I learned about both the functional and the psychological aspects of working in a computerized environment, and the use of the computer as both a working tool and a communication tool, and designed the product upon them.

The flashlight’s design and function were inspired by iconic stationery products. It is colorful, compact, and fun, intended to create a joyful and productive working environment. The flashlight has a soft light mode facing the user, suitable for business video calls, and a stronger light mode facing the working area for comfortable continuous work. The user can customize the light according to his needs with a simple twist. The device easily connects to the laptop screen thanks to a silicone-coated clip and recharges with a USB cable.
