Good Night Lamp @ Groupon

Jan 15th 7:00-10:00pm 



Everyone knows Groupon. This deal-of-the-day site was hosting a product demo by Alexandra Deschamps-Sonsino -and not everyone knows her. She's the Founder of Good Night Lamp and she came all the way from London, so I crashed this event to see what her new start-up is all about. Alexandra has been focused on the "internet of things" and it's implications in the design of everyday products. This has led her to create a space in people's homes for quirky, internet-connected objects.

The Good Night Lamp brings people together through a neighborhood of networked lamps -a family of internet connected lights. Turn the Big Lamp on and the Little Lamps turn on wherever they are. If you want to keep your eye on a loved one that lives alone, or if you live abroad and can't seem to call your family at the right time (or don't want to) or if you just want to connect home and work by signaling a subtle sign to tell people you're on the way -that's where Good Night Lamp comes into play. The Good Night Lamp creates a tangible reminder of the others presence and connects people around the world at a flick of a switch.

If you find Good Night Lamp interesting they recently jumped aboard the kickstarter train, so you can support it here.
