A team of young international designers work @ Hong Kong based Creativoo and design new kind of visual stimulus with tradition defying ideas.

These three lamps are from Creativoo’s designers under the brand name Minglo (pronounced Ming-Glow) from the T-series lamps.


Designer Gaelle Seznec                         Loop

In this architectural lamp you don’t need buttons and sensors. Instead use layers of moving glass to mechanically adjust its brightness.
