Sour Worm Lamp evolved through experimentations of letting light escape and cast dynamic shadows. Curves feature largely in the design; through exposed cut lines, along the natural shape of the vessel, and three-dimensional squiggly details that circulate the body. Taking on the final look, the lamp evokes nostalgic memories of gummy, sour worm candy.
