INCENSE COIL / lamp

INCENSE COIL

The inspiration of “INCENSE COIL” light is from an ancient timekeeping method among monks by burning incense. With the modeling of coil incense and the character of controllability and lightness as an LED, this design is of modern pithy style. The tube includes 6 joints which make it possible to fold and unfold it flexibly, as well as to achieve economical packaging and transportation. Applying the principle of the timekeeper to the switch, there are 6 time scales, 10 minutes for each. The light gradually dims as time goes by, until it is totally off.
