This collection of wall lamps is inspired by the shapes, pendulums and weights of Mennonite wall clocks, originally quite ornately painted and made out of steel and brass. These clocks embody an inherent sense of home and place, so with this in mind, this collection has a focus on mental health and well-being. Circadian lighting tells time as the light changes intensity and colour throughout the day, thus limiting the effect electric light has on human circadian rhythm.
An abstract clock element allows users to choose between a 24-hr and a traditional 12-hr clock. Users will be able to control the lighting either through touch, such as running their hands through hanging brass chains, through a switch or through a smartphone app to be developed in the future.
