Christian Schech and Bastian Wetzel
A power failure at a folk festival inspired designers Christian Schech and Bastian Wetzel to see the light. Watching women at the festival rummaging through their purses in the dark, the technically trained duo sought an engineered solution. Previous pocket flashlights were awkward and inconvenient to handle, so the designers' decided to develop a lightweight, conveniently sized handbag light that's portable and easy to use. The team was joined by designer Benedikt Lehnert, whose involvement shaped the design process that produced this illuminating design.
