Offline Lamp is a minimal lamp designed by Vienna-based studio Kelemens Schillinger. A typical table lamp with a black drawer integrated on its pedestal. The drawer is like a magical chest that requests a small object like a smartphone that can be put inside. Once the smartphone is locked inside the drawer, the light turns on. When you give something, you get something in return. In this case, you trade the often uncontrollable urge to check for new messages for a bit of light that invites you to read a book instead or just focus on your work. What remains is the simple solution “Out of sight, out of mind”.
