NiteLanding’s lamp looks like the view from your airplane as you’re flying over a city at night! Taking topographical data of cities and adding light to them, NiteLanding isn’t really a decorative map as much as it’s an interactive lighting device. In the day, it looks like a bird’s eye view of your favorite city, but as night falls, the NiteLanding lights up, just like the city does, mimicking streetlights and building lights as seen from above! It truly resembles looking down upon your city from the skies!
NiteLanding was born out of a passion for travel, and a need to capture the beauty of a city, not just during the day but also at night. NiteLanding comes to life in the dark, as small pores and dots light up on its surface to resemble the city’s lights. Each city’s map is crafted to perfection, sometimes with details that are as much as half a millimeter thin. The maps use highly accurate and open-source data from OpenStreetMap, capturing the finest and smallest of details to create a relief map that’s as accurate as it gets. Right behind the map sits a piece of acrylic glass with thousands of dots etched into it. LEDs around the edges of the map help illuminate these etched dots, making them look like thousands upon thousands of street lamps and building lights. The lights even come with a dimmer switch to control the brightness and intensity of your city’s sparkle!
Each NiteLanding comes with a frame that allows you to hang it on a wall, and a cover that lets you use it as an interactive installation, placing miniature objects and figurines on it to bring out the map’s interactive element. You could put that Eiffel Tower keychain to much better use, resting it right across the Trocadero on your miniature map of Paris, or add souvenirs from your travel on top of the map to give it a more personalized, more interactive touch. The NiteLanding lamps come in two sizes, and can even be customized to carve a special message or your holiday hashtag into its bottom right corner, near the city’s name. Who knew maps could look this mesmerizing at night too!?

NiteLanding Lamp Story
“We all love to travel and our goal is to run out of pages in our passports. Our story began from one night flight, when we were approaching our destination’s airport for landing. We was captivated by the mesmerizing views of the city skyline with golden lights peppering the city. The warm, ambient glow emanated from buildings, roads, and streetlights, all forming the modern-day city we know so well. That’s how the NiteLanding Lamp came to be. We created this lamp so that we could pause time and stay in that moment forever,” Reawsanguanwong told Yanko Design.

Each artwork of the city map is crafted with precise clean cut and contours with micro details (some lines as thin as 0.6 mm). We remain all the actual map accuracy (OpenStreetMap data), and restyle the streets, roads and rivers in the form of 3D ART. Our Satin-White finishing of the city street layer resemble a minimal purity of white canvas painting. Each city map is accompanied by the city’s name with its respective time zone (UTC).

They created the “Glowing Street Light Effect” (patent pending) to simulate the city night view. By implementing lighting depth illusion on the transparent plexiglass layer (underneath the city street map) to replicate more than a thousand illuminated lighting effect of buildings and street lights.
The basic theory is when the light travels into the edge of a clear polymer or glass, the light will bounce around inside until it finds a way out at the far edges with the effect of no light being lost (similar to the basis of fiber optics). But an interesting twist happens when the surface between the edges is disrupted. By etching and carving pattern on each surface of the material one by one, we control where the light escapes and create the effect of more than thousand street lamps.

Low Heat Lighting: Safe to touch
LEDs are cool to touch because they generally don’t produce heat in the form of IR. We designed the “Glowing Street Light Effect” by having the LEDs conceal along the side of the frame, a similar technique to the edge-light system for light guide panel (ELS-LGP).
With the city street layer placed on top, the heat is placed further from light source making the lamp surface low in heat and safe to touch even for playing.
Touch Sensor Dimmer Switch
Take control of your lamp with a smart light dimmer. A simple touch on the logo to turn the lamp ON/OFF. Touch and hold to dim the light up/down. Adjust your city light brightness to your preference with the step-less dimmer.
With built in smart memory chipset, the lamp intelligently recognized your last brightness when turned OFF. Perfect for your preferred preset brightness to your bed light level before sleep!
