Night missing / Lamp

Night missing

People in an alien land are easy to think about home in a quiet night. Night missing is a table lamp designed for those people living in other place. The inspiration is originated from an ancient Chinese poem:” I raised my head and looked out on the mountain moon, I bowed my head and thought of my far-off home”. The homesick mood is involved into the furniture, people in an alien place raises to see the moonlight and bows the head to see their hometown. I design such a table lamp to remind youth in other place to silently think of his hometown in busy time.
