button      Logo design of the button stool project 1/5

Button project inspired from buttons which used in electronics stuff for operating the system. Other inspiration source is the button word itself. When the letters was divided as butt+on, it gives the main idea about how this product works.

Having a beautiful light effects inside, i thought it would be a good idea using this stool as a lighting object at the same time. So along this concept, i created a button cafe project which used button stools inside. The cafe's lighting level depends on customers' number. The more customers means more brightness and a more colorful place.
