“Heng” is Chinese for balance and when Chinese designer Li Zan Wen created the Heng Balance Lamp, creating Zen is what was truly on Wen’s mind.
When we think of regular lamps we know exactly where the switch is, however with Wen’s new design the switch is in the most unusual of places. In the center of the lamp is where you find the levitating switch.
Based on traditional Chinese round fans and window frames, Wen’s design places lights inside the ring-shaped frame which then illuminates the frame. The unorthodox lamp breaks from tradition creating an ethereal ambiance in any room it inhabits.
