The Sun Rising Lamp is Inspired by a Japanese New Year Tradition

The Sun Rising Lamp provides the best way to wake up. As its name gives away, the design is inspired by the rising sun. The light bulb hides behind its mountainous base like the fiery orb cresting the peaks on a brand new day. For urbanites who are unable to appreciate the real thing on a daily basis, the Sun Rising Lamp allows them to at least appreciate a sculptural simulation of a beautiful sunrise.

Designed by h220430, the Sun Rising Lamp is inspired by a Japanese New Year tradition that involves people worshipping the sunrise at the beginning of the year by reciting their optimistic resolutions. But the designers note a sunrise happens every day, writing, "Tf people have this same feeling every day when the sun rises, the world will become a much more peaceful place."
