qlnq / LED light


“qlnq” is a rechargeable LED light which resembles a light bulb. The power of the imagination of the designer has transformed the meaning and figure of an analog light bulb into an LED light.

Each part of the light bulb has been given a new function and meaning.
The socket which connects the bulb and wire has become a light-emanating LED.
The filament, which is the illuminating part traditionally, has become a circuit that connects the battery and LED light.
The wire of the traditional light bulb has turned into a charging connector.

A user may push the “qlnq” like a Russian tumbling doll to turn the light on or off.
