Instead of using an evacuated bulb or a bulb filled with halogen, the Slow Glow lamp is filled with a familiar organic material: vegetable fat. Created by NEXT Architects and designer Aura Luz Melis for Droog Design, the lamp constantly changes its brightness through the process of melting and re-solidifying the fat.

The melting process starts once a required temperature is established within the bulb. The fat slowly melts, giving the light a warmer tone. The process takes about 2 hours, after which the fat returns to its original solid state.

The lamp was first presented at 2004 Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan, as part of Droog’s “Go Slow” project. In line with the presentation theme, the Slow Glow Lamp underscores the “luxury” of taking things slow and invites you to enjoy a moment of rest.
