Hikari (2015) – Lamp

Time, or the passing of time, has always been represented in objects; from the tracing finger of light cast against a sunlit window to the slow degradation of a dropped ice-cream against the side walk.
Hikari commands an elegant aura of light that emulates a natural environment of sun and moonlight, representing both astronomical time within a space but also supplementing a user’s natural exposure to sunlight. A rotating glass lens refracts and directs light from the hanging sculpture; casting a solid beam of colour to indicate time of day.
A SAD lamp for everybody, Hikari allows anybody to enjoy the benefits of extended sunlight – balanced serotonin and melatonin levels, responsible for controlling hunger, mood and sleep, can all be damaged without sufficient access to sunlight.
