Traditional objects have always inspired designers. They have incorporated modern technology to old designs to form entirely different entities. The Hourglass Lantern by Young Bok Kim is a revolutionary light that operates similar to a conventional hourglass apart from dispensing the LEDs upside down instead of sand. However, the designer has made few more changes in the basic form of the hourglass to enable the users to regulate the time, by twirling the halves like a dial, and control the flow of the light from top to bottom. The Hourglass Lantern with its customary look, combined with majestic radiance, can be a good replacement for candlelight to illuminate your dinner table.
