Polar Lamp / Lamp

Polar Lamp
Polar Lamp

The lamp uses characteristics of the lampshade,
which is made of paper, to show an environmental
message through the lights and display.

The lampshade uses images of animals that
currently face extinction, such as polar bears.

The base of the lamp resembles an iceberg.

Before turning on the light: The polar bears get
together with each other in the snow.

After turning on the light: Since the ice melts,
the polar bears are forcibly separated from their families.

The purpose of the polar lamp is to remind users
about the consequence of the global warming.
