Midas Sconce

2018
 

Midas is a sconce for the moment of returning home.

Midas is designed to be hung near a door.  It casts a welcoming glow into the room when you return your keys to its tray. It creates a ritual that relieves the primal concern of entering a dark space.

Process



Midas originated from the tension experienced when opening a door into a dark room. I was inspired by the moment of emerging light, and how it creates relief and casts away doubt.
