More on playful lighting, this time its Superpatata, a squishy light from Hector Serrano for Droog Design. Created from latex, salt and a fluorescent bulb, Serrano explains “I wanted to let the user control the intensity of the light just by touching it. As you squeeze the light, the bulb moves around in the salt, and gets brighter as it gets closer to the surface. That’s what the product allows you to do – play with light.”
Superpatata can be used as a lamp but also as a pillow, antistress device, an object to warm your bed. The superpatatas can be easily stacked on top of each other.
