Stian Korntved Ruud's switches

 stian korntved ruud switch design project

Stian Korntved Ruud is a very young (23 year old) and talented norwegian designer. Diversifying his topics with clocks, desks or even spatial discoveries, he recently focused on electric switch and its toggling move. Looking for new interactions about this gesture, this way of triggering something, and the electricity nature, Stian designed a serie of prototypes called "Circuit Breaker". Some only need a battery and a light bubble, others need an Arduino to work. 

He uses magnets, carbon from a drawing pencil, a weight or a coin. In this way, Stian strenghtens his reflecton about the occasion to switch on or off the light, the gesture complexity, its necessity... Met during the Paris Design Week, Stian told us he looked forward to creating other switches, exhibiting them and maybe making them available for anybody. Let's hope his work will meet such a success.
