Inspired by calmness as a concept direction, Damla lamp inspired by the cutting edge lines of symmetrical architecture, the softness of the droplets of rains and the texture of rippled water. Through the understanding of lighting source, Damla creates soft shadow, plays with texture and transparency of the material.
