UrbanEgret / Lamp


For city dwellers, ones that often been over-shadowed by heavy workload and fast pace of ever-changing society, a sense of unrest is felt throughout the day. It is the way we ctreated "Urban Egret": an imitation of the egret standing in peace with nature. Its luminese changes as the egret lamp swings from one position to another.
The light dims as the lamp bows its head, much like the egret in its resting position. Light becomes brighter as the egret lifts its head (lamp) up. People can relax and have peace of mind in enjoying the fresh air and this nature-like atmosphere.
