Wallice / Humidifier + Light


Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

Wallice - Bright breathing
Carbon-filament bulbs emit this uniquely warm light that makes people feel comfortable and cozy. The delicate filament does not only generate light but also heat, which usually goes to waste. This makes regular bulbs very inefficient despite their economical production process. Wallice wastes nothing. It uses the heat to evaporate the water in the lampshade and practically works as a humidifier – for an important purpose: it prevents your airways from drying out, stabilizes your immune system and protects you from getting a cold. A few drops of essential oil in Wallice’s water round off the relaxing ambience.

Simple, beautiful and functional.

Winning the iF STUDENT DESIGN AWARD 2016 really means a lot to me. I am delighted about this appreciation for my lamp, which encourages me to continue pursuing clarity in my design vocabulary. This award will inspire me to develop further creative solutions for furniture that is homely, pure and beautiful.
