The playfulness of everyday things

Swing Lamp by BCXSY

As if they had been the perfect students of my Interactivity, Play and the Everyday project at the Bauhaus, art/design cooperative, BCXY have been working on a project called PLAY!.

BCXY are Boaz Cohen and Sayaka Yamamoto and PLAY! “consists of a collection of products that was conceived out of a desire to bring a sense of nostalgia and playfulness into the grown-up environment.”

Mark Pesce once described a swing as the ultimate “invitation to play” – something that’s formed part of my research and work on interactivity ever since. So, naturally, I liked the glowing “Swing Lamp” – even if it is a bit spooky.
