“I remember when I was young, there is this special afternoon,
in the smell of rain, I raised my head,
through the sunshine,
I saw the most vivid green in my life.”
Through Light Desk
Designed by Tian Tang in 2014 spring
I believe a desk is not merely a desk in a child´ world, but endless play occasions. Light makes clear shapes and color, enriches scenario experience and shapes space. By incorporating a light plate in the tabletop, children can study closely patterns and colors. When the tabletop is flipped over, it works as ordinary desk with light shining downwards, enriching lightscape in the room, thus triggering play occasions, for example, theater play, hide&seek, etc.
