Bloomp is an interactive lamp, which redefines the switch of the traditional lamps and adds a natural feeling to the experience of using them.
Inspired by the beauty of the flower blooming mechanism and Chinese paper folding, I designed the foldable structure, which could be used to control the brightness of the light. In addition, the structure encourages users to save energy usage.

The project is still in the prototype and user-testing stage.

Laser-cutting Model Prototype Using Recycled Cardboard
In this prototype, I made my own screws using cardboard, which fit the style of the lamp and decreases the friction in joints.
In this prototype, I use distance detection to change the brightness of the lamp.
