The lighting in one's home is often designed to blend subtly into the interior, which is why Jiyoun Kim designed the 'Lightning Lamp' -- a gorgeous sculptural light source that aims to elicit a sense of inspiration.

As its name suggests, this lamp's neck takes the form of a lightning bolt, while the bubble-shaped shade is reminiscent of a billowing cloud. The item was designed to represent the exact moment lightning hits the ground, as its creation was inspired by an old Korean saying which roughly translates to "being struck by a thunder out of blue sky," which describes how individuals process and deal with unexpected situations.

Both meaningful and sculptural, this lamp is sure to complement the interior of any modern home.
