Glithero creates lamp you switch on by toppling a row of dominoes

A simple switch is replaced by a line of dominoes in this unusual lamp by London design duo Glithero, meaning a chain reaction is required to turn it on.

The Domino Light is accompanied by dozens of conductive copper dominoes. You can arrange the dominoes in any configuration you like, as long as the first and last domino meet up with the copper strips embedded into each side of the lamp base.

These copper strips are referred to as the “rocker” domino, the first domino that starts the rally, and the “receiver” domino, the last one in the chain.

After the rocker is tipped, a domino effect ensues. The electrical circuit is completed once all the dominoes have fallen, with the last one landing on the receiver at the end.
