The two most significant fields of professional and private appeared at the edge of brutal collision within the most casual homes and apartments. The pursuit of a humane and profound solution for this problem leads us to find inspiration in one of the most elegant concepts of modern partial physics – supersymmetry.

This idea led us to design a smart classy lighting fixture that can help people to switch between their life essences by the simple move and magnetic click. As supersymmetry itself, the sustainability of the home-centered life approach needs to be proved experimentally in the post-pand
