Oriental landscape - Lighting cup

The landscape illustration on the Lighting Cup is derived from Soomook-sansuhwa, a traditional Korean landscape painting. Reinterpreted as illuminated ceramic art, the landscape is “drawn” with the variation in thickness of the cup walls. The Lighting Cup is useable as a teacup and turns into ornamental lighting when combined with a saucer which has an embedded LED. The light is turned on and off with a touch sensor and is powered by a rechargeable battery that supports a Micro-USB connection. Designed by Bo-Hyung Kim
