Pebbl is a smart porcelain and NZ Cherry Beech lamp developed and refined by New Zealand Designer, Nicole Marshall. The resolved design is a modern take on the traditional lampshade form, playing on the use of a material not often applied in such a way. Pebbl was exhibited in the Material Matter exhibition hosted at BLOC, Auckland in collaboration with Douglas and Bec.
During the design process, it was found that the user interaction was key as the moving reed switch came into play. The switch function is made successful by magnetically controlling the on and off positions, enhancing the user’s connection with the lamp as they are involved with a new and innovative switch system.
