Designed by Sara Krugman, Rohit Sharma, Katie Kindinger and Andrew Stock, the Kowtowing Lamp aims to explore products with individuality. The beautiful lamp works as both a lighting unit and a data visualization device. The Kowtowing Lamp aims to express that “how things communicate” is also as significant as “what they communicate”. Made from plywood, the lamp first appeared to be breathing at its bottom portion. On further analysis, its creators found that the lamp bowed towards them instead of breathing. The upper part of the lamp is a single sheet, which has been made flexible and mat-like by a special laser-cut pattern.
