I'll admit it. I'm a klutz. Self proclaimed klutz here! I'm not a walking disaster or anything like that. You won't see me walking into walls or tripping up the stairs - let's just say I'm not too smooth on my feet. This is why Ataton, a floor lamp by French designer Cedric Ragot would be my worst nightmare! Tip it over in one direction and the light comes on. Knock it over in the other direction and the light goes off.
I can just see myself tripping over this thing in the dark...which I guess would turn the light on. I could also see myself tripping over this lamp in the light and turning it off. It's an interesting concept I guess. I just wouldn't know what to do with it. It reminds me of the lights that you might find on a vacuum cleaner to help you vacuum under a table or something. Where would you use this and what would you use it for? Oh, by the way, it's a conceptual design and not available for sale quite yet. - Via Yanko Design
