Air Switch is Mathmos’s evolution of touch lamps. The Air Switch design comes in two sizes and is controlled by sensors triggered by hand movements over the light. According to Mathmos managing director Cressida Granger, Air Switch is designed to be ‘fun to use’. ‘It has retained the magical element of Mathmos’s products, but allowed us to step forward into functional main lighting,’ she says.

The lamp will be launched at 100% Design.
