02. FIRST LIGHT


OVERVIEW

The First Light is a futuristic classic. It’s design depicts the evolution of humanity in a simple parallel between two forms of energy. The flame and the electric current. Two of our biggest achievements. Differentiating what we were and what we have become. Ultimately taking us out of the dark and into the light.

But for the first time they are being paired next to each other to remind us of our ability to think, grow and change. As the candle melts lower we see that the lightbulb seems to rise higher. Acting as a metaphoric reminder of our mental and industrial growth

03. INNER LIGHT


OVERVIEW

The Inner Light recreates the feeling of the sun in the home by bringing the balance and harmony of the outdoors inside. This boxed light acts as a metaphor for our own spiritual creativity emitting from within our current work from home confinement.

As the Inner Light gently turns on utilizing an inner timer it reminds us that our work day has begun. Likewise as the sun begins to set the Inner Light begins to dim acting as a soft reminder that our work day is over. Allowing our home environment to flow with the natural rhythm of the sun.
