Eliminator is a table lamp which has different light sources in it. It uses paper as a curtain shade to the light on the top and the shredded papers as the nest of a new light at the bottom. Users can personalize the lamp by their choice of paper from magazines, newspapers, etc. By using the handle on the side, the paper is shredded and becomes a curtain for the lamp. Once the user wants to change the background of their lamp, the shredded paper falls down onto the bottom plate giving rebirth to itself as a new light source.

Hypothesis: Objects that are open to interpretation and have the potential of developing in different ways acquire memories and emotional attachment over time. How can design promote this bond between objects and their users and thus prolong their relationship allowing them to grow old together?


This project is motivated by a desire to create solutions to the negative effects of obsolescence, excessive consumerism, technology and lack of emotional attachment between users and their products. "Grow Old Series" consists of objects that have the ability to transform and recreate themselves, representing cycles.
