Modern lighting techniques for indoor decor have given birth to an array of products ranging from simple desk lamps to ever-grand hanging chandeliers, but the 'Kibako' lamp stands out among them all thanks to its boxy design.

It obstructs the flow of any flat wall making eyes travel to its figuring immediately as it juts out as if a building block was forgotten to be placed in the wall. In broad light it looks like a simple, faded wooden shelf upon which one can leave trinkets to add to their home decor, but the magic, as usual, only begins when house lights are off. The front panel of the boxy structure begins to glow as a light source from behind the seemingly opaque wood turns on. The 'Kibako' lamp provides an ambient glow that does not hurt the eyes when in complete darkness.
