Before eyes / bedside lamp

Before eyes
Before eyes

In order to preserve the culture and beauty of brick, it should become a new material used in modern product design. “Before eyes” is a bedside lamp made of brick. The appearance comes from a kind of traditional Chinese architectural carving on brick. Ancient Chinese scholars liked the implied meaning – people should focus on the present before asking their future - in this pattern. So the scholars seized every time they can read. “Before eyes” communicates the meaning to users and helps them read before sleeping. It can be separated into two lamps for two people lying on one bed. They can operate their own lamps without bothering each other.
