The Mushroom Family | night light

The Mushroom Family | night light

Place  the Secret Stone to turn on the lamp, 

and observe the light of the mushroom fade to life. 

The stone-shape switch is activated by using carefully hidden magnets

Made from Ash, White Oak, and pulp. 

Constructed using high-quality LEDs and batteries, 

it can be placed in the best position without the obstruction of wires.

It is not limited by voltage  and can be easily used world-wide.


 

We started designing an interactive nightlight for our daughter even before she was born. We pictured her playing with rocks with us, and that image inspired the prototype of the light. Since then, we started researching electric circuits, a concept unknown to us before, to explore all kinds of possibilities for lighting. Three months after our baby was born, we took her on a hike in the mountain, where we found white mushrooms standing in lines on wet and rotten logs in the bush. This surprising encounter inspired us to include a mushroom in the design. I hoped I could share with my daughter, sleeping sweetly and sound in my arms at that time, the touching feeling of coming across new lives, just as she did when she entered our life. Hence, I brought that memory back to the studio and designed a light that can spread the same touching feeling I experienced to every single home.

 

The Mushroom Family was a gift for my little daughter. It was inspired by the Mushroom. The birth of our little daughter added more joy to the family. We hope that the sisters can grow up and share the wonder of life on this piece of land.

 

We also want to share with you our love for our kids and the joy of life. We wish you all the best.

 

The rock serves as the switch. The mushroom will gradually light up after the rock is placed on the base, and will slowly turn dark and switch itself off once the rock is removed.

蘑菇姐妹是在二女兒出生之後,
送給她的禮物,
它來自於蘑菇小夜燈。
而蘑菇小夜燈的成形是來自於:
我們帶著三個月的大女兒去爬山,
過程中,看到角落從腐木長出一排白色的菇,我看了很感動,
這是我想跟當時熟睡的大女兒分享的生命的感動,
也像是我們當時迎接她這個新生命而有的感動。
二女兒的出生對我們而言,
就像是家裡多了另一份感動,
同時也希望她們姐妹倆能在這片土上,
一起長大茁壯、一起分享生命的美好。


願能夠把我們對孩子的愛、及生命的感動分享給您,
願一切美好。

    ▎Powered by batteries

    Products powered by batteries don’t have to be placed near charging sockets. You can put them wherever you want.

    使用電池
    使用電池,可隨著使用者的需求,擺置於完美的位置,不受電源牽制。

     

    ▎LED bulbs

    The high-quality LED bulbs we use have up to 20,000 hours of lifespan. They do not emit heat when in use, but they can surely warm up the space with their yellow light.

    LED燈泡
    選用高品質的LED燈泡,使用壽命為20000小時,使用過程不產生熱,卻能將溫暖的黃光帶進空間中。

     

    ▎Compound materials

    We mixed paper pulp and cypress slivers to recreate the softness and texture of the cap for the Mushroom, which is combined with a wooden stem to create a gentle atmosphere.

    複合材質
    使用紙漿及加入些許檜木木屑表達蘑菇的柔和及質地。與木頭莖部及底座結合,呈現其溫潤。

     

    ▎Fade in and out  light

    We spent a huge amount of time studying electric circuits because we want to use a fade in/out effect for the Mushroom, instead of adopting the traditional design that controls the light with a flip of a switch. In this way, we can demonstrate the inspiration we got from the mushroom we saw the other day.

    漸亮漸暗
    為了能讓蘑菇體現我們對生命力的感動,花了好長一段時間研究電路,以蘑菇漸亮漸暗來取代一般燈具即亮即暗。

     

    ▎Stone-like switch

    The stone on the base is a  switch. Place it inside the designated area or remove it to turn on/off the light.

    石頭開關

    將開關設計為石頭,將石頭放上檯面上固定的範圍內,即可漸亮,移開即可漸暗。

     

    ▎A gift for kids

    This is a gift for kids. The original idea was an interactive light that helps little kids learn how to hold things. The light will accompany them as they grow up: they might put the stone-liked switch in their mouths at the beginning, then try to place the stone on the base, with their face lighting up when they see the mushroom gradually brightening. This process will create an unreplaceable memory.

    給孩子的一份心意
    這是一份我們對孩子的心意,是由當時想設計製作出,能給孩子訓練小手肌肉抓握,能與她互動的燈具開始。隨著孩子的使用,能參與她的成長-從抓起石頭開關放入嘴裡、嘗試將石頭放到位置上、看著因為放上石頭而蘑菇漸亮驚喜的表情。而這些過程是無法被任何事物取代的。

     

    ▎Code

    Every piece of work came from our hands. Upon completion, we iron the brand logo, inscribe a code on the craftwork, and even allow customized inscriptions, giving every craftwork a unique identity.

    編號
    每一件作品都是由我們親手製作,隨著作品完成,像是簽名一樣的品牌烙印及刻上編號,讓每一件作品都具其獨一無二的身份。
     

    ▎Packaging

    Every product is attached with a homemade drawstring pocket. The product-and-bag combination can be a good gifting choice because the recipient can immediately see your thoughts for him/her. We hope the attached bag will continue to be used even after the product is taken out and placed in the house.

    包裝

    皆附上我們自製的拉繩布袋,如是購入贈禮,視覺上也有著滿滿的心意。
    也期待作品進入空間後,包裝用的布袋能夠持續地被使用。
