Roger Arquer

My grandmother had a touch lamp when I was a kid, it still remains the only one I’ve ever used.  Why aren’t touch lamps more common?  It may seem like a novel convenience but why would you want to walk over to a lamp to turn it on instead of just flicking a switch or if you’re really lucky, clapping your hands.  Well, what if instead of touching a lamp you had to touch a bunch of flowers IN the lamp?  Sure!  Designer Roger Arquer has blended together a vase and a lamp into a cohesive and dependent unit.  Made for Bosa, to turn on the light you simply touch the flowers which mainly composed of water easily conduct electricity and complete the circuit.  What does living in electrified water do to the flowers?  I’m not a botanist, but it’s still a pretty cool idea.
