Nachtfalter / Bedside lamp for children


Nachtfalter is a bedside lamp for children that animates its users to tell stories, to communicate and share thoughts. By switching it on, parents are discreetly being reminded to take some time for their little ones. When the pleated fabric is pulled apart, punched out illustrations of a fairy tale or story appear. These are being projected onto the room walls through the lamp in the centre.
Depending on the age/interest of children, different lampshades with various themes are available. Their packaging resembles a book to provide convenient storage.
Different lampshades can be easily removed and installed into the frame of Nachtfalter.
