Beams of Night / Light

Beams of Night
Beams of Night

The design is presented to offer people a sensuous experience with gentle light change when they’re falling asleep at night and waking up in the morning. Beams of Night is based on the form of a wall clock, which enables people to tell the approximate time in the dark. With time passing by before midnight, each beam of light representing a time interval will begin dimming itself starting at its indicated time, and completely extinguish by the end of that time period. After midnight, these beams of light of corresponding time intervals will gradually brighten themselves one by one following the same mechanism mentioned earlier.
