Risky design

Flood light, by Michael Cross and Julie Mathias from Wok Media, questions a key fundamental: our fear to mix water and electricity. “It only looks dangerous,” Cross points out. “Most of the things they teach you about electricity are just lies. You can either be really ignorant and get away with it, or you can get a bit more knowledge and still get away with it. It’s only if you’re in the middle that it doesn’t work.”


The duo also created the Blow fan that features an on/off switch mini-fan attached to the front of the main fan. The main fan is activated by blowing on the smaller version; to turn it off, the user does something that looks quite risky too: he sticks a finger into the blades of the mini-fan.
