Firefly Night Light

This project was part of a design competition for and sponsored by Kikkerland. The Firefly Night Light was a fun, playful take on childrens fascination with fireflies, and bringing the same warm glow seen outside, into the home. This night light has a suction cup that is used to stick onto any window and charge during the day with a solar panel. When night comes simply press the fireflys head down and watch as the wings expand and turn on a warm, yellow glow. This design was made into a working model.
