Light Handed to You On a Platter – The Light Container

With a light bulb cradled casually amidst the curvilinear design of the sculpture, designer Jung Hwa-Jin’s light sculpture, The Light Container, is a clever little accent.  Hanging offhandedly, The Light Container was designed to reflect the different potential meanings of the term “putting in,” as they’re understood by western and eastern culture.  In order to do this, he had to develop a sense of dropping movement and immediate halting that he was able to get from compiling these plate-like containers.  Several of these would be a cool sort of design for low-ceilings in a more steam-lined space or possibly a creative kitchen.
