Interview with Kang Shan at Thursday 3rd of May 2018

FS: What is the main principle, idea and inspiration behind your design?
KS: In our home, there are many lights switch, most of them are fixed to the wall and can not move, which brings us a lot of inconvenience. You need to go to a fixed place to turn off or turn on the lights; You need to search for the switch,not let the switch be where you want it to be; You need to lay a lot of extra lines for the switch; You may even be troubled by an irrational switch position for a long time.

FS: What has been your main focus in designing this work? Especially what did you want to achieve?
KS: I am concerned about the man-machine relationship in life.

FS: What are your future plans for this award winning design?
KS: Further improve the design

FS: How long did it take you to design this particular concept?
KS: I need about one or two months.

FS: Why did you design this particular concept? Was this design commissioned or did you decide to pursuit an inspiration?
KS: I want to get my inspiration.

FS: What is the most unique aspect of your design?
KS: "Free touch" is a new type of wireless switch, it brings a new way to open, and consists of two parts of the switch and the baseplate. The switch cosists of a small wafer with a new type of human body pressure sensing technology. You only need to attach it to anything you think is reasonable, and then do some natural touch, and it can light your lamp.There is a card slot on the baseplate and a solar panel on the back, and the battery is charged with solar energy.

FS: What is the role of technology in this particular design?
KS: The switch cosists of a small wafer with a new type of human body pressure sensing technology.There is a card slot on the baseplate and a solar panel on the back, and the battery is charged with solar energy. When the switch part needs to be charged, just need to put wafer into the card slot.

FS: What are some of the challenges you faced during the design/realization of your concept?
KS: In the process of production, ultra-thin pressure sensor will be a difficult, because it is hard to put many of the structure and components in such a small switch.Besides, the technology of signal transmission between switch and lamp will be a challenge.


FS: Thank you for providing us with this opportunity to interview you.
