AROUND / light


In China there is a folk saying "What can fill a whole house?" Some people brought cotton and some straw but they could not fill the house. At last one man lit a candle and the candlelight filled the whole house.
AROUND is a touch light that can be charged with solar energy by attaching bulb to the lampshade of the house.Although people who live alone enjoy the freedom there are still times when they feel helpless and lonely in an empty room alone. Turn it AROUND, let it be around you and your empty house, soothing your lonely heart.AROUND will make you feel like you are never alone.
