house lights

Interesting little lamp in the shape of a house - "House Lights" is a lighting concept and was created as a self directed project by Kristian Aus.

The house is an object that plays such a large part in our lives that it has been immortalised in countless stories and imagery.  It is a place that we escape to and try and escape from.  In fairy-tales and children’s stories it can be a wondrous and scary gingerbread construction,  a weak, temporary shack that is blown down by a murderous wolf or a place of refuge to protect our hero from evil.  The house represents family and a place we can call our own amongst the darkness.  It is a beacon that calls you back from travels and guides you home when you need it most.  It is a vantage point to look out from or a place to look into other people’s lives.  The “House Lights” represent all of these things and whatever your own personal affinity with this universal object might be.  The three sizes and shapes are designed to work on their own or as a ‘village’ and represent a tiny sample of the variety of ideas that make up our love-affair with the house.
