After the Light a Moment candle lantern, creative label Laikingland, which is based in both the UK and The Netherlands, is now offering an exclusive sand timer that indicates the passing of time with the sound of a gong. Designed by Maarten Baas for Laikingland, “Just About Now” sand timer was born out of the designer’s interest in ways to indicate time. The designer thinks that during a coffee break, a powernap or an office meeting, people in western world could take a few minutes longer or shorter than an exact amount of time. Therefore, he created a sand timer that bangs a gong about the time indicated by the user.
An upshot of collaboration between Joost van Bleiswijk & Kiki van Eijk, the “Light a Moment” is an exclusive candle lantern created for Laikingland, a creative label that specializes in making highly crafted limited editions. The hand activated ‘Light a Moment’ features a traditional church candle that stands stylishly on a ceramic base that embodies characteristics of textiles. The ingenious design flaunts fragmented mirrors that reflect the flame of the candle 1000 times. The protective shell opens gracefully and with high sophistication to let the users admire the beautiful process of lighting the candle. Laikingland is a famous creative label, which is based in both the UK and The Netherlands.
