HENG is a series of lamps by Guangdong-based designer Zanwen Li, whose design lies in its brilliant element of interaction that controls the lamp’s light. Two floating balls in the wooden frames are used as control buttons to switch the light on and off. The orbs are magnetically attracted to each other and suspended by a string. When the lower orb enters the magnetic field of the upper one, the lamp switches on. By releasing the lower orb, the lamp goes off. The lamps are breaking the traditional way to turn on light and bring joy to our monotonous life.
