The ‘Nick’ Lantern by Low Roof

The ‘Nick’ lantern is an ambient illumination piece for the modern home that incorporates a naturalistic function and form into the space to help enhance the everyday lifestyle of the inhabitants.

The light features an hourglass-like illuminator on the interior that is surrounded by glass and will change in appearance according to the settings. The unit thus mimics the appearance of the setting sun that will start full in the day and slowing disappear before finally going out.

The ‘Nick’ lantern is the design work of the Seoul-based design group Low Roof who spoke on the unit saying, “The Nick was inspired by the sunset that symbolizes the end of the day. It was designed based on the circle of the sun, the visual elements of the slowly darkening sunset, and the principle of using the hour clock.”
