LuLL Flowering Lamp Concept

It appears to be just a concept for the moment, but I adore this "LULL" lamp that opens and closes like a flower, softly dimming the light before fading out at night, then cracking open along with the dawn. Something about items in our home responding to the outside world really, really appeals to me; I want my home to breathe. (And yes, I know how to make the walls breathe, but that's not a good daily solution.) Of course, not all children man be as happy as this one to wake to a yawning metal blossom beaming light right into their soul, but if you can't traumatize a child at least once a day, what's the point of having them?

    ARBORMAN: it makes you wake up much easier: it simulates the body response to sun rising (the way people woke up when there were no alarm clocks).

    Yeah, you wouldn’t want to put a really harsh bulb in there. Or one full of bees.

    And because I couldn’t bear to put it in the post, but also couldn’t bear to post it: LULZ!

    Neat idea, but why would I want a light that comes on in the morning? Wouldn’t a light that comes on when it’s dark be more useful?

    I’m just saying…

    Arborman @ 5: You might want it as a dawn simulator, especially if you live towards the poles where dawn can come pretty late in winter…

    Why not just leave the blinds open?

    I’d love it if (as I assume must be the case) the timing could be reversed and it would open over my chair as the sun went down. As a reading lamp it could be a nifty item.

    I’ve used a full-spectrum light on a timer to help resrt my circadian rhythms for some time now, but this would really be an aesthetic step up.

    This is such a COOL idea!! my little sister has a frog/lily pond themed room and she went nuts when she saw this. Although I kinda agree with the above comment about needing a light in the morning… if the timer could be reversed it might be better….but still SO COOL!!

    My only concern would be that the shadows would be harsher than they appear in the mockup.
