Hygge

 

The warmth and light of fire in electric form.

A 'lantern' based on the Danish concept of 'Hygge', "a concept of creating cosy and convivial atmospheres that promote wellbeing". Made of cast ceramic, this 'lantern' is a modern take on fire. Whether it be for light, warmth, or just ambiance, flame holds a special place in our lives, and though we have less need for its traditional uses we still find ourselves drawn to its flicker. Hygge aims not to replicate this, but rather usher its appeal into the modern world. The light and heat is provided by a traditional 60w infrared bulb, which provides an extremely warm glow through the night, in addition to a soothing warmth. The ceramic heats just as your coffee mug would, inviting people to warm themselves with a gentle touch.
