‘WOLOLOW’ night light: a miniature copy of the ‘Futuro House’
Design trio Artur Koshatashyan, Kostya Trunov, and Simon Robson introduce ‘WOLOLOW’, a UFO-shaped night light for the home. Oozing nostalgic sci-fi vibes, the product actually represents a miniature copy of the iconic ‘Futuro House’ designed in 1968 by Finnish Architect Matti Suuronen as a portable chalet. ‘We believe that this faithful and accurate 1:32 scale model with the added functionality of a lamp will be a pleasant and fun reminder of the times of the Space Age for you. So let your children dream, and you choose the right color and brightness and enjoy the pleasant glow of the UFO,’ shares the team.
playful lighting, durable power, and nostalgic aesthetics
The WOLOLOW comes with three different brightness levels and seven light color modes. These functions can be managed by touching or holding down a button at the top of the night light using a single finger. Powering the product is a Li-On accumulator that can last up to 12 hours, and users can recharge using a magnetic port located at the bottom of the WOLOLOW.
As for materials, to ensure durability and safety, the body is fitted with ABS plastic and the windows with PC plastic. The base, meanwhile, is made of metal with coated tips.
The trio will launch its official WOLOLOW Kickstarter page in 45 days, and buyers will have the choice to pick the night light in one of four colors: white, sky-blue, yellow, orange. The selection of shades playfully alludes to galactical features and co-existence between aliens and us — the ‘earthlings’.
