Happy Diwali!

floor lighting

Sanjhi Luminaries: low level floor lamp

Designer: Ankur Khare

Don’t you think floating flowers and diyas have come alive in a brand new avatar! This low level floor lamp by artist-designer Ankur Khare is brilliant on many counts. It incorporates traditional look, international style and traditional craft called Sanjhi craft.

The Sanjhi craft of Mathura is a ritualistic craft used in the worship of Lord Krishna. This craft involves cutting paper stencils to make Rangoli patterns on walls and floors and themes and motifs depicting the life of Lord Krishna.

(I promise a detailed post on Sanjhi craft very soon.)

So what better way to celebrate Diwali than with a design which encompasses Rangoli, diyas/lights and flowers and an ancient craft!

Happy Diwali!

If you are designing light would you be thinking of Jail?! Or City hall or Crematory!

Or even sleep! No but you sleep when lights are off.


Designer: Leila Atlassi

A master’s student at HDK, Göteborg; Leila Atlassi have thought of these extraordinary context and concepts to design extraordinary lighting products!

See how the context or story shapes these lights:

If sleep is miles away then count sheep in this ‘sleeping game’ light!

Not the same amounts of diodes are lit every time.

An artificial sunrise is also waiting for you in the morning!
