Chinese medicine scale is used to weigh herbs and ingredients accurately, playing a significant role in Chinese Traditional Medicine Culture. The Precise control of quality reminds me of the concept of electricity conservation. Weigh the light is a table lamp which can adjust brightness freely. As weighing herbs,the cylinder is pulled to right means the light is becoming“heavier”, therefore the light is brighter. This table lamp may help reduce the waste of electricity by reminding users to choose the brightness they really need accurately.
