Household lamps typically have very basic functionality with respect to energy – expressed in lit states of ‘on’ or ‘off’ or somewhere between. In the ‘Flower Lamp’ example, it is not just the light of the lamp but its very form that reflects energy used. The lamp ‘blooms’ – changing its shape and thus lit expression – when energy consumption in a household has been low for some time, thus reflecting the cycles of local energy use. In order to make the lamp more beautiful, a change in behaviour is needed.
