Finn Magee is a product designer interested in creating cultural objects. Though his aim is to bring awareness to products we tend to buy and whether or not we need them, his clever inventions are so much fun, they’re necessities in and of themselves. His most recent project, the Flat Life series, appears to be photo printouts of desk lamps, speakers, and alarm clocks upon first inspection. But the cords that dangle off the page are real and allow the 2D objects to come to 3D life. The alarm clock tells real time and the photo of the lamp can be switched on and off. Each piece is hilarious yet functional and available online at Areaware. Here’s a look at the simplicity of the Flat Light.
