IN THE AIR

A FRIEND IN NEED

India Today - - HOME -

The cult of E. T has spawned an en­tire uni­verse of prod­ucts in­spired by the ex­tra- ter­res­trial with the large head and a heart to match. Here is a bright lit­tle ad­di­tion to the bri­gade— Tom the friendly light. Con­cep­tu­alised by South Korean cre­ator Kwan Hoo Lee for Hoos De­sign as a com­fort­ing pres­ence rather than just a source of il­lu­mi­na­tion, it is a quirky con­trap­tion made out of birch ply­wood and pelt fab­ric. The user’s guide to this one reads “Do not pull the power cord with force. Tom will suf­fer. Please treat him care­fully when ad­just­ing the an­gle of his neck. He is made of wood, so don’t let him be ex­posed to fire or cu­ri­ous chil­dren.” The hand­made ware which costs $ 250 (` 13,817) is avail­able in a bright colour pal­ette of green, orange, pur­ple and blue to go with its cheer­ful per­son­al­ity.
