Blighting / Wall Lamp


In Korea, There are distinct residential spaces that are semi-basement (room) and Goshiwon. These rooms are a narrow and poor space that especially people on low incomes live in. Fatal problem of these rooms is darkness. Because the part above the ground is too narrow, sunlight can hardly enter the semi-basement, making it difficult to between day and night. Also, even there is a windowless room. The sunlight is gift of nature to all living things. Everyone should be given the equality of receiving this delight. 'Blighting' is an artificial window lamp to make people feel sunlight in the poor environment.
