Heng Balance Lamp

Within the frame of the pleasingly minimalist Heng Lamp is a surprising way to illuminate it. The lamp is lit by connecting the balls containing embedded magnets. Separating them turns off the light. The sleek design creates the illusion of light passing through the curved frame. Let the Large Heng live as an art piece in a favorite area of your space. Move the Mini around your home wherever you need light. Both the Large and Mini are powered by USB plug-in which can also be used with a wall-socket adapter.

Why We Chose This
Designer Zanwen Li's lamp ("Heng" means "balance" in Chinese) combines innovative technology with traditional craftsmanship. The magnetic mid-air switch and the warm, natural wood come together to create soft, soothing illumination.

Innovative Function
Function plays a large role in defining good design. When designers look at an object, they don't just consider its aesthetic appearance—they should also challenge it to be more versatile, to respond to the user's need, or to achieve its purpose more elegantly. Good design has the capacity to solve problems that sometimes we didn't even know we had. This is one of the ways design touches and enriches our everyday life.
