Switch Light is an object with no defined top or bottom in a traditional sense. This is because it has two functional sides, one to receive light and one to emit light. The button-less device is turned over and a tilt switch—hidden in the object—turns the light on. The result is a liberated experience where light is free to move around the home or outdoors. The size is large enough to cast a pleasing amount of light while being small enough for a child to turn over with their hands.
