For a minute, forget your fear of accidentally falling into a manhole while walking down the street. Just imagine how neat an escape one could be if you needed a break from the bustle of the world. The Gully Cover Light has been designed with this fantasy in mind, inviting you to explore your childlike mind's eye with a sewer grate for installation inside your home.

Chuang Chihong's Red Dot Design concept is actually a very unusual light fixture, technically performing as a floor lamp but protruding no more than a couple of inches above the surface of your hardwood, tile or carpet. The Gully Cover Light comprises a replica of a patterned manhole cover with handles which has been designed to be picked up, pulled aside and left to expose a bright white glow.
