INTERVIEW / PAUL CHAN: UNCOMMON BEAUTY IN COMMON THINGS.
EC: Your lighting series, Either/Or, encourages an emotional interaction between individuals and their lighting source. What do you hope that users will take away from this interaction?
PC: I hope this light will inspire a sense of play, give people back the curiosity they had as children, the instinct to touch, to give everyday objects a new perspective. As technology advances, design objects look more and more generic. the inviting form of the Either/Or light entices people to knock it around a little bit, have fun with it, kind of like flipping through the pages of a good book or the touch of a cool glass on a hot day.
