To increase consciousness of energy consumption in private homes, the designer put an intangible product, energy, into a very human language. A pulsing glow gives the consumer an ongoing report on the amount of energy being used in the house, which will ultimately lead to more awareness of domestic energy consumption and an increase in conservation of that resource.
"The design features an ingenious, intuitive and very human interface. The system's potential environmental impact is huge. A beautiful, poetic solution." -Imre Molnar, IDSA, Dean of Academic Affairs, College for Creative Studies
