Exhibited at Tokyo Design Week, 2009
This set of energy management devices are part of a family of concepts under the theme "Small Steps for a Better Future. These are meant to provoke new interactions and awareness around power usage within the home. All three require some engagement to use, and are meant to push back against the "set it and forget it" mentality.
The three devices are:
A large ring that can be pulled to the amount of time the outlet will give power for.
A timer that people use to set how long they want their light to last.
A long arm that can be lifted to the desired room temperature. Once reached the arm gently returns to the off position.
