INK TIME / leisure and lifestyle


“INK TIME”is a new type of illumination.
We engage ink spreading and time by using a special ink, which would disappear in about a quarter.
Therefore, every ink drop would falls and disappears on a regular basic, reminding people that time actually goes by.
Using this light, people have to clean and refill the ink weekly to get some blank time and take a break, creating a special experience.
