A Light, Inspired by Light


Lights are a fairly familiar sight on Yanko Design, but none of them can quite compare to the Lightning Lamp. The soft, rounded and simplistic form of the cloud combined with the angular, sharp and aggressive shape of the lightning bolt creates a striking design. The simplistic approach that designer Jiyoun Kim took to the design allows the lamp to become a subtle feature in any room.

Embodied within Lightning Lamp’s playful form is a more serious message that influenced this design. “Being struck by a thunder out of the blue sky” is an old Korean Phrase used to describe people confronting unexpected, catastrophic events. This lamp encompasses the message of overcoming unforeseen challenges throughout your lifetime by changing your outlook.

The combination of a unique design and a powerful message creates a visually stunning and meaningful lamp that would be a great addition to any room!
