Shoe Light
Design, Fabrication
2007

This project was part of a series of concepts where light ‘communicates information’ to inhabitants of the space.

The shoe light is for people who take their shoes off upon returning home.

Lights can only be activated by placing shoes on pressure sensitive switches.

When you return home at night, you’ll know right away how many of your housemates are at home.

Returning to an empty home is the worst! You have to fumble around and try to get your shoes off in the dark.

When you are the last one home, you are greeted by the warm glow of a full house.
