Even fans of extreme minimalism still need on and off switches—after all, what good is a beautiful lamp if it doesn't work? Industrial Designer William Lee, though, has figured out how to banish the on/off switch using a simple tilting mechanism that knows to kill its soft glow when the lamp's been knocked over.

But what it lacks in buttons, the Switch makes up for in lumens, with 60 LEDs illuminating your work space. And so there's no pesky cord hindering its clever toppling trick, the Switch is rechargeable, presumably occasionally sucking power from a USB port to keep it running. So who wants to do us all a big solid and put these into production at a reasonable price?
