CALEO / Candle Lamp


How can we free our interaction with light from its dreary status? Is there a creative way, to oppose our button pressing culture by bringing back traditional product interactions?

Caleo is the reinterpretation of a night candle. Night candles where used in early days not only for vision against darkness but also as a living accessory, for reading, sleeping, atmosphere and other home activities. Caleo enhances those activities by combining traditional features with modern technology. Little gadgets that solve mundane problems by redefining product interactions are genius inventions which bring joy to our monotonous lives. Liberate the Light!
