Apples + pears are portable lights, that through a playful juxtaposition of the everyday forms of the apple, light bulb and stereo cable result in the user picking these illuminated objects like ripe fruit from a tree. The plug socket of the light object functions as a touch switch. Just touch the metal ring once, and switch the light either on or off. If the light gets low connect it to the cable and it will charge and give light simultaneously. The clip can be used to alter the length of the cable. Make the loops bigger and the cable becomes shorter or make smaller loops and it becomes longer. Just pick it!
