Dark Wood (coating) is now available!
Are you bored by the traditional way to switch a lamp on or off? Are you looking for an innovative desk lamp that still functions like it is supposed to?
Then you should try a new way to break this monotonous life with the HENG Balance Lamp!
HENG lamp has a switch structure of two balls inside the wooden frames with embedded magnets. By moving them, these magnets will attract one another, thereby triggering the switch.
It's a new and interactive way to brighten up your room!
The two balls are the switches of the lamps. By lifting the lower ball up, it will draw the two balls together with each other's magnets inside. First they will flow in the air and when they reach a balance, the light will switch on.
Using the HENG will bring a fun, innovative and interactive twist to your life!
The HENG lamp has an attractive curved design, it creates the illusion of light passing through the wooden structure.
The most magical element of this lamp would be the switch. Two wooden balls function as the light switch. Once you pick up the lower ball and put it near the upper one, the two balls will find a balance and levitate in the middle of the lamp. Once the balance is reached, the lamp switches on.
The design has an easy structure, which makes it easy for volume production. HENG is already in the prototype stage and will be ready to be brought into the market.
Because we want you to feel close to nature, we selected high-quality wood to manufacture the Heng Lamp. This will give a warm and natural appearance and is suitable for all types of rooms, like study, bedroom and living room.
Our stretch goal is to reach €10.000. With your help we can achieve that and provide you with new stretch goals, new designs!

Allocacoc is an industrial design company, aiming to create a different standard. After having successfully launched the award-winning PowerCube around the world, Allocacoc set up this platform, DesignNest. DesignNest provides ambitious designers with guidance from the initial idea to a finished product on the shelves. By working together with designers, we offer them a unique and practical learning opportunity, where they experience every step in the process themselves.
Having these production facilities offers many advantages. Firstly, the production capacity can be increased within a very short time span. This also offers us more flexibility production-wise. Another advantage of having our own factory is that it enables us to offer competitive pricing, as fewer external parties are involved. Lastly, this full control over the production process allows us to closely monitor our products' quality, as the production process can constantly be monitored and tweaked where required. Because of this, we are able to try out innovative production techniques which would else-wise be impossible.
The HENG Lamp will be manufactured and packaged at Allocacoc's factory and production facilities near Shanghai, and will perform the final quality control to ensure that HENG lamp reaches you in the best condition possible.

Risks and challenges
As we already have experience in the design and manufacturing of innovative products, we are confident that we will be able to fulfill the project within the specified time frame. Our experience from previous projects tells us that the largest challenge is to meet the demand, which is why a Kickstarter project is perfect. Not only will we get the necessary funding for production, we will also be able to foresee the demand and adapt production to this demand.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
