The “Light 45" is a minimal table lamp with an octagonal prism head. The head of “Light 45" is connected to the 45-degree angle cut end of square pipe. The lighting head rotates about axis on the 45° angle slope. As a result, the direction of light can changed range from 45° to 135° angles.

The lighting part of the “KLEE” consists of four connected LED disk parts, which can be rotated about three axes connecting each part. As a result, the KLEE becomes not only a table lamp, but also an objet that can be changed in various ways.

Narcissus, the beautiful boy in greek mythology fell in love with his reflection, not realizing it was merely an image. Unable to leave the beauty of his reflection, Narcissus died. He tried in vain to touch his own reflection. The gesture to touch his own reflection was the inspiration of my work.
I have designed a form that is reminiscent of a small pond. When we touch the mirror image like Narcissus and press or rotate the mirror part of “The Pond”, it can be moved to different angles and fixed by two magnets inside the mirror. As a result, we can look in a mirror variously.

NEST is transformed from an air mattress to a boat via the manipulation of its internal hooks and ropes. Inspired by the transparent sea creatures known as ‘ghost’ or ‘glass’ fish, NEST is an inflatable product that can serve as a boat or an air mattress. Behind its transparent surface is a network of red ropes and spring hooks. They allow NEST’s internal structure to be changed. The user can hook and unhook ropes without needing to touch them directly; this can be done with sight as a guide. When all the spring hooks are used, NEST can take the air mattress form. When few hooks are used, it can take the boat form. Project with Yifan Zhang

Table lamps are usually on the table with many everyday objects, such as pencil, note, cup and so on. However, there is no special relationship between lamp and these objects in terms of form and function. In this project I’ve tried to create new function and formative relationship on the table.
The led table lamp “meeT” is combined with a pencil. Thanks to this combination, we can make the lamp stand on the table at last. There is a spiral space in the brass base of the lamp. And we can insert different kinds of writing materials into the space and move them along the spiral path. Depending on the position of the pencil, the meeT stands in various angles and illuminates a worktable in different ways.
When we use a ladle to scoop food from a pot, it is difficult to scoop out the very last of it. Usually another utensil (such as a small spoon) is required to get right into the corner between the base and wall of the pot. "Ladle Sweeper" provides a simple solution. The lower half of the scoop is made with flexible silicone rubber, which allows the user to scoop up all of the food from the base of the pot, no matter its shape.

The “U Bowl” is a cooking pot designed with a special U-shaped silicone part on the side that enables the user to simply clean both sides of a cooking spoon without wasting food. The flexibility of the silicone part also enables the user to hold the bowl while using it.

"Wave" is a universal bowl which has elegant flowing curve. This curve allows the both sides of the cooking spoons which have various curves to clean up simply without a waste.
The “Moving Lights” is a movable light installation. This installation is transformed into various forms depending on the movement of lamps. Each LED lamp can be moved along the two crossed ropes (3mm in diameter). And the movements of the lamps create various rope structures and light changes.
