Shells are often related to intimate childhood memories. The echo, the beautiful soft creature inside protected by hard shell, and the interesting light effect of scattered shells inspire my design.

Copper foil inside the light create a soft and warm light quality through the big opening. The other end of the light resembles the scattered light effect of crashed shell.

Turn off the light by flipping it - put the opening side against the table.
