Our modern alarms may be a little irritating, though we are looking for smoother melodies. The same can be said about indoor lighting: it’s nothing like the natural one and doesn’t make us feel good. But modern designers are ready to offer a solution that is made to get us back in touch with organic sleep and wake cycle.
The Hora Timelight by CINCO Design simulates the cadence of nature with light and sound. When it’s time to get up, Hora brightens from dark to the rich, warm colors of dawn. Hypnotic melodies, reminiscent of nature sounds, fill the air. When it’s time for bed, Hora reverses, soothing you to sleep with a slow transition from sunset hues into night.
As beautiful as it is intuitive, all the components are hidden within a seamless injection blow-molded shell. Without buttons or knobs – it encourages users to interact by picking it up and shaking to turn it on, double shaking to quickly brighten, or rotating it on its base to turn the volume up or down.
