Designed to coincide with drifting away into the sleep world, the Night Night by Vanessa Hordies is a lamp with a timer that counts down the standard time it takes for people to fall asleep. Taking the form of an hourglass, when you turn it over, a 15-minute timer is activated and the sand slowly trickles down.

Night Night by Vanessa Hordies is a convenient nightlight, as it will turn itself off when the time is up. Designers built it around the notion that the average person takes between 10 and 20 minutes to fall asleep.
