Lei Light Reflection is a lighting product combined with an aroma diffuser and a mirror. It is an innovative design that utilizes reflected light inside the oval-shaped frame, creating a soft and beautiful light when viewed from any angle. With 3 color types and 4 levels of dimming, the product can fit to a variety of situations at personal, small-scaled spaces from bedrooms to workplace.
The aluminum body is coated with elaborate anodized coating which is also a testament to superior craftsmanship, actualizing refined appearance. The design aesthetic is reminiscent of traditional Japanese lighting or the shape of ancient “andon” lanterns. It could also be described as an embodiment of the well-honed sensibility towards Japan’s delicately transitioning season and the time within it.
Although the protagonist of this product is the light function, the aroma diffuser is also a noteworthy point which uses an international patent pending technology. By setting a few drops of aroma oil upon the aluminum plate matrix, it will spread over the entire plate surface through capillary action and efficiently diffuse the scent to the air, assisted by heating operation.
