KIHOU by tangent, a creative studio based in London, England, and Tokyo, Japan, is a mysterious liquid light that might make people question the existence of magic. It has a dark fantastical design that will captivate people like the flame of a candle.

Essentially, KIHOU by tangent is a glowing orb that emerges above a murky liquid surface only to burst when it pushes above. As it descends and dims back downwards, another one appears to take its place. As though it were the evolutionary next step of the retro lava lamp, KIHOU by tangent comes in the form of a ceramic cube rather than a plastic oval. Covered with a thin layer of black silicone oil, it comes complete with an LED light and small pump. Stats for Bubbling Liquid Lighting Trending: Older & Chilly
