🔦 A next-generation flashlight.
Lux is a hands-free kinetically-charged flashlight, capable of charging while you walk. Lux is paired with a drawstring bag lined with reflective fabric capable of enhancing the light it produces. The flashlight was specifically designed with outdoor activities in mind.

The brief for this project was to design an evolutionary innovation of a rechargeable flashlight for Uniqlo. Utilising user-centred research, we identified common pain points with flashlights in the specific context of outdoor activities, like holding a flashlight during activities that require both hands, and recharging it.
The outcome of this design sprint was a kinetically-charged lightpod capable of charging while you walk. The lightpod is designed to clip onto any fabric, and comes with a drawstring bag lined with reflective fabric which enhances the light emitted by the lightpod. Lux would incorporate seamlessly into Uniqlo's brand by being paired with a line of clothing which uses reflective material.
