A trip to Africa inspired Christophe d’Orey to design the KOH Lamp

Designer Christophe d’Orey, founder of Hong Kong-based KŌH Concepts, developed the critically-acclaimed KŌH Lamp after a trip to Africa, where he would see villagers gathering after dark to socialise – and creating their own ‘mood’ lighting by placing light bulbs inside coloured cannisters.

“I was reminded and touched by how something as basic as a campfire was able to bring people together and encourage them to connect,” d’Orey says. “This inspired me to take another basic item – the plastic water container – to create a source of light that could transform atmospheres and remind people about the importance of interdependence even in our busy and modern lifestyles, and enable them to reconnect around the primal fire.”
