KŌH Concepts Launches Light that Reinvents Atmospheres
Lamp takes a basic item up a notch to make it extraordinary
Singapore, 3rd April, 2013 – KŌH Concepts have announced the global launch of its first home design product, the KŌH Lamp. With its warm glow, flexible usage and creative design, the KŌH Lamp is a great mood setter and conversation starter. The KŌH Lamp, offered in eight shades, is all that is needed to transform workspaces and living areas.
A sensory experience with a spiritual dimension
The concept for KŌH Lamp was inspired during a trip to a village in Africa, where villagers would gather around a campfire each night, to discuss their days. They would also place light bulbs inside an assortment of coloured canisters for complementary lighting. Together with the warm glow of the fire, the coloured lights created a soothing backdrop for friends and family to come together and catch up.
“I was reminded and touched at how something basic like a campfire was able to bring people together and encourage them to connect. This inspired me to take another basic item – the plastic container – to create a source of light that could transform atmospheres and remind people about the importance of interdependence even in our busy and modern lifestyles, and enable them to reconnect around the primal fire,” said Christophe d’Orey, Designer and CEO of KŌH Concepts.
A new dimension to your environment
Who would have thought that an ordinary, everyday item could do just that? The translucent coloured water container has been refreshingly repurposed into a stylish piece of furniture fit for modern lifestyles. With a flick of a switch, the clean, simplistic shape transforms itself into an extraordinary chromo-therapeutic tool to lift moods and soothe souls.
Just one of the cleverly crafted KŌH Lamps is needed to fill an entire space with the colour of choice to set the mood. Available in eight radiant colours, KŌH enlivens, enlightens and elevates the everyday.
The vibrant and energetic glow that the Lime Green and Orange KŌH Lamps emit not only brightens up your day but also enhances your home furniture. The radiant glow of the Magenta and Purple lamps add a touch of sophistication to any interior design while the natural beauty of the Bamboo Green and Green auras are perfect for those looking to connect with their inner peace. The calming Lagoon and Blue illuminators are ideal for those looking to create a tranquil, laidback and soothing environment.
Endless possibilities of lighting ambience
The KŌH Lamp is incredibly versatile and can easily adapt to different room areas and countless situations. With its moderate glow, the lamp is easy on the eyes, providing the optimum brightness for movie watching and ambient lighting. The lightweight and easy-to-clean surface also makes it suitable for outdoor use.
The KŌH Lamp also compliments stylish lifestyles with a green conscience as it eliminates the need for multiple types of mood lighting, consumes minimal energy and is easily recycled.
