Every once in a while we discover a product here in Japan that is really different, something to get very excited about. Two years in the making, this highly original lamp has a distinctly Japanese quality that will nonetheless be enjoyed the world over. Unique in form and design, the Evul Todai Lighthouse Lamp is also a superb therapeutic tool for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. As the name suggests, the lamp imitates Japan's iconic lighthouses ("todai"), while employing a heat convection turning system for its photo lens.
The makers of the Evul actually typically manufacture cellphone parts. However, the CEO of the company has always harbored a passion for lighthouses so set his team to producing a mini one. The results were so good that they decide to launch it as a new lamp product! More than just an ornament for nostalgia purposes, however, the Evul has been created to help you relax at home and forget your daily stresses. With bright, vivid light filters it is graceful to your visual senses, while the gentle aromas will stimulate your sense of smell. And, despite the special lens and functionality of the Evul, there are no extraneous noise or sounds to distract you from your rest.
The heat convection turning system requires no motor and rather allows you to enjoy multiple colors in an environment of total leisure. The 5 color filters can create 15 patterns, each bringing different benefits, such as to help your concentration, lower your appetite, calm you down, rest your eyes, and make you feel happy. The simultaneous healing can be matched with your choice of aroma oils to silently ease your mind and body's ills, burning off peacefully in the hollow on the top of the lamp. Unlike many aroma oil products, though, there is no flame so you can fall asleep without fear of fire, and in fact the light can be enjoyed without aroma oils and purely for its color therapy.
Every part of this product is made in Japan. Both sophisticated home accessory and quasi-artwork, the Evul harnesses regional culture's ceramic craftsmanship. Each of the lighthouses' shade reliefs are individually fired to an appropriate white tone courtesy of Shunzan, the third generation potter of a family that has been making Mino Yaki ceramic wares since 1902.
Ideal for relaxing at home in your living room or bedroom, the Evul would also likely make an atmospheric and genuinely harmonious addition to any bar, cafe or public space. The lamp even comes in its own special gift box created in the same factory as Louis Vuitton Japan!
