Sandglass Light / Bedside lamp

Sandglass Light
Sandglass Light

We always want to turn on the bedside lamp before going to bed to sleep, but after sleeping, the lights on until the next day, it waste more electricity! To solve this problem, users only push over the lamp, which combines with the concept of sandglass, the lighting will gradually become weak with the flow of sandglass, after 30 minutes, the weight of the sand enough to touch the switch, so the light turns off automatically. It saves more electricity and make more fun.
Combine the concept of Do It Yourself, users can mix pigment with jelly wax randomly, and then pour in the hollow lampshade. Users gain joys from whole process.
