Yet small with its two entrances and three distinct layers of arches that differ by depth, height and width, the Tianjin Vanke Jade Avenue Sales Center, located in the Qingxi district of Tianjin, China, was treated, from a lighting point of view, as a key project by taking advantage of the waterscape to virtually double its volume with a simple and functional lighting design which ensures that visitors are welcome in a space that has the potential to become part of their future housing compound.

The Reverse Sunclock Wall Lamp offers a concept that focuses on bringing together two ever existent notions, that of time and light. ADD Architecture Studio designed a lighting product which bears the ambition of bringing those two together. The coexistence of a clock and a lamp in a statement of an object was the goal. The discus gradually lights off in parts like a clock would do in order to remind the user of the change of time during the day, corresponding to the different needs of direct and indirect light. The design relies on the contrast of light and shadow on the chosen materials.

What you receive with Olah is four lights in one.
