These lamps are turned on when you pull their nipples.
The felt pieces by designer Naama Arbel have silicon covers over the switches and LED light source.
The switches must be pulled outwards to turn the lamps on and pushed inwards to turn them off.
Arbel designed the series while studying at Seminar Hakibbutzim in Israel.
Here's some more information from the designer:
The series is composed of five different amorphous and geometries creatures.
The objects suggest different approach to the interaction of human with lighting. This new approach emphasises the human touch, the game and the sensual experience to intensify the general experience.
The product is handmade and produced using traditional felt techniques.
Those objects, which are made of felt, take us back to our childhood games and our basic needs. The light creatures awaken by touch. They are activated by stretching the silicon nipple which activates the lighting mechanism. Leaving the nipple will result turning it off.
The lightning mechanism which was developed for this project is built from combining “REVEL” LEDs and an electronic device that controls the lightning volume.
The device is connected by wire to the silicon nipple. When pulling the nipple the wire is stretched and activates the light volume control.
