Is it a lamp? Or a sculpture? Or both? The Guilin is most appropriately described as a ‘lampscape’. With etched acrylic mountains that sit on an illuminated base, the multiple award-winning Guilin lamp lights up your room with an ambient glow, while also adding sculptural beauty to one’s space… and it purifies the air too.
Principally, the Guilin lampscape comes with a base that uses edge-lit acrylic mountains to disperse light around the room. The abstractly designed edge-lit mountains come made from glass-reinforced acrylic and sit within slots in a metallic base fitted with a low-voltage 2700K warm LED light. The light shines through the base and the clear mountains, bouncing off the lines etched into the acrylic…. but that isn’t all. The Guilin Lamp also works as a photocatalytic air purifier that uses visible light to unlock certain naturally occurring minerals to cleanse the environment of impurities and toxins like 99.99% bacteria, CO2, formaldehyde, and odor particles. A good example of how this works can be found right above you for roughly half a day… the sun. The Guilin Lamp uses a similar light-based treatment to enrich and elevate your surroundings, not just aesthetically, but also in a very tangible way by purifying the very air you breathe… and it does so while channeling the same sort of imagery, hence the mountain-inspired design.
You can shift and orient the mountains to create a landscape that gives you calm or complements your space. You can even cleverly add more mountains to diffuse more light, much like a physical, interactive dimmer mechanism. Designed as an ode to nature and the tranquility of mother earth, the Guilin lamp’s base comes coated in environmentally friendly paint, while the acrylic mountains themselves are made from 40% recycled plastic. Place the Guilin lampscape on a glossy reflective surface and it mimics the feeling of staring at the mountains sitting right behind a lake!

Guilin Lamp – Customizable Designer Lamp That Can Cleanse
A new category in lighting design. With etched acrylic mountains that sit on an illuminated base, the Guilin lamp lights up your room with an ambient glow while also adding sculptural beauty to one’s space and it purifies the air.
The Guilin is embedded with their Photocatalytic Environment Cleansing Treatment. Photocatalysis is a process that uses any visible light (natural or artificial) to activate certain naturally occurring minerals to cleanse the environment of 99.9% of all known bacteria such as E-Coli, carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxide, formaldehyde, odors and molds.
The treatment lasts forever and the more mountains you have on your Lampscape, the better it will cleanse the environment. With the standard Guilin (4 Various Size Hills) are able to cleanse an area approx of 1.8 meter cubic volume.
Designed as an ode to nature, Guilin is a living design and lighting element and you can transform it infinitely. You give shape to your own glowing landscape. You can slot as many mountains as you like in the 3 grooves located at the base and change their position whenever you like. Thus, the lamp puts you into the role of a creator.
The number of mountains you slot and their position can create different lighting effects:
– The more mountains that are placed on the lamp the brighter it becomes.
– The reflection between the layering of mountains will increase the brightness.
Unleash your creativity and Combine, Layer or Joint Horizontally several Guilin into an ever-changing rolling Lampscape.
The Guilin Dawn uses their World Exclusive Italian nano-tech acrylic material that changes to a beautiful orange/yellow tint when the lamp is on and magically becomes near transparent when the lamp is off.
Inspiration & Story
When you think of China and its fabled mountains in ancient mythology, you are thinking of the famous Guilin Mountains.
Founders Kevin Chu and Giulia Di Bonaventura went on an adventure trip to Guilin Mountains and there they were mesmerized by the mythical scenery and always thought one day on using the mist-filled mountainous elements to create a design paying tribute to this region. In the beginning Kevin drew up a few criteria for the design to create a lamp that is:
– Unique and Revolutionary
– A Functional Illuminating sculpture
– With Infinite Customization Possibilities to extend its design longevity made with Sustainable Materials
– Simple and Elegant as abstracted visualization of the inspired elements and after 883 days of hard work, Guilin Lamp was born:
Made of Sustainable High Quality Materials and Components, GUILIN consists of a rectangular steel base that is embedded with low voltage warm white (2700K) LED lighting. 5mm thick Glass Fiber Reinforced Acrylic Panels can be placed inside the 3 slots in the base. When the light is switched on the acrylic mountains will absorb the vertical illumination into its Surgical Grade laser engraved lines.
