Heart BEAM / Lighting

Heart BEAM
Heart BEAM

Too busy to date is a common phenomenon in modern day world. People do not have time to see each other because they feel exhausted after a day’s work, and often the only way to connect their hearts is through a brief time dining together, over a warm, soft light on the dinner table. Dining is like hugging each other, and this elegant porcelain design with a glass body and a walnut base skillfully reflects this sentiment. This Heart Beam design uses water to bridge plants and light. The voltage differential of metals creates current to yield a soft yellow light to create an atmosphere of candlelight dinner.
