Mobile light: Research assignment for students at FHNW

The Industrial Design course at the University of Applied Sciences of North-West Switzerland (FHNW) is currently working on the topic POETRY OF LIGHT: MOBILE LIGHT. This project assignment was set by RIBAG and the intention was to encourage the students to focus more closely on the topic of light and mobility and thus “mobile light”. “With increasingly more flexible ways of living, it is ever more the case that you should be able to move and use light independently of fixed installed power supplies”, explains Pascal Amacker, Creative Director at RIBAG, who is actively supporting the project. The task of the students is to design and then present so-called battery lights. “The objective is to produce a lighting prototype”,  Pascal Amacker continues. RIBAG is supporting the students of the University of Applied Sciences of North-West Switzerland with technical as well as material assistance, or so-called “tinkerers’ stuff”, as Pascal Amacker calls it in jest.
