Designer Samira Rathod @ SRDA

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.


Designer Gaelle Seznec                         Lune

From the different angles, the shape looks like a full moon or sometimes a crescent moon. Lune is the French word for moon.
