How did you interpret the design brief and your specific moment?
As a designer I want to enrich everyday rituals. I think the ideal everyday ritual at 22:41 is to find a good transition from a hectic day to a calm night. Candle lights create a sensual mood that can facilitate this. After brainstorming, I developed three lantern concepts. One of them was refined and realized in glass. When I explored the prototypes, I discovered new areas of use. I worked with Magnor Glassworks throughout the whole process, and Multi will be developed further and launched with them.

The lantern Multi consists of two glass bubbles, one of them within the other. The opaque inner bubble gives the light source an organic shape. The transparent outer bubble captures and projects the light. The two intersecting colors create a new, more complex hue. Multi can also be used as a vase or as a light sculpture that interprets sunlight as color on the table. Multi's function changes during the year. In the dark months the object glows; in the bright months the object displays the sunlight and flowers.
