Hurdle Lighting for your desk

Hurdlelighting1.jpg

Don't be deceived by its simple form or somewhat ironic name. While it certainly resembles a hurdle, Hurdle Lighting aims to remove, not create, barriers to getting the right amount of illumination on a table or work space. The light structure is designed to stand either horizontally (like its namesake) or vertically, more like a desk lamp. A sensor detects how it's been positioned and operates the light accordingly.

I particularly like how its slender design means that it doesn't get in the user's way, even on a busy desk. Plus I could imagine simply picking it up and using it as a mini-searchlight if I were rifling through the clutter on my desk to look for something.

Hurdle Lighting was designed by Koreans Lee Suk Woo and Byeon Dong Jin, and received a Special Mention in the 2007 Lightouch Design Competition in Singapore. No word on its commercial availability yet, but every contemporary work space could certainly use a lighting device as sleek and user-friendly as this.
