The notion of time slipping through our fingers is well represented by the sand timer, but how about light slipping through? This effect is captured by the Lime Light – Solar Fled Lamp and is well depicted by the tiny glass bulbs that refract light as they cascade down the hourglass and illuminate the room. The clock is ticking….glass balls fall through to the bottom half, and when they run out…the lamp switches off. Elegant and with a strong message to conserve. Time (light) is running out….
