Korean designer Jiyoun Kim has created the Lightning Lamp. The unique shape and design of the table lamp was inspired by an old Korean phrase “Being struck by a thunder out of blue sky”. The head of the table lamp which holds the light bulb is made from blown glass. The lightning-shaped neck is made from stainless steel. The table lamp comes in four different colors in reference to the sky in different times, daytime, early morning, midnight, and sunset. The Lightning Lamp was unveiled in London Design Fair 2017.

From the designer, “We often strongly desire ourselves to become individuals with the capacities to endure and overcome such events. This might the reason why writers, for more than centuries, enjoyed to translate these desires in forms of literatures and theatre, where the antagonists must conquer or overcome the conflicts through dramatic plots. Likewise, the readers and audiences also fulfill their superego of becoming one of them. Lightning lamp is the item expressing these desires: we want to become individuals watching the scene above the clouds, not helpless victims under the cloud struck by the lightning. In other words, lightning lamp encompasses the message of overcoming challenges during lifetime by changing the outlook.”
