Slovenian designer Nika Zupanc has designed these whimsical wind-up lamps to encourage romanticism in traveling and to “break the rules of contemporary traveling.”
The delicate lamp designs feature a brass key that serves as the winding mechanism to power the lamps. The stand of the lamp can be removed to allow other functionalities to be available as well.
The sense of travel among people today is mostly compromised of warm beaches or trips to Europe and lacks the distinctive drive to actually experience a culture due to conditioned social norms. Zupanc lamps provide travelers with the opportunity to sever their ties from the status quo.
