Bird keeping has long been a tradition in Eastern culture. Visit a park in Beijing one morning and you will see many birds in birdcages, with elderly men enjoying their singing birds and happy friends. Inspired by this leisurely lifestyle, Sean Chen, CEO of DAQI CONCEPT developed the concept for the JinGoo Musical Birdcage Lamp, a combination of home art, ambient lighting, and a wireless Bluetooth speaker.
“We wish for JinGoo to be your very own companion in life, to make spaces magical and to inspire endless imagination.” Sean Chen, DAQI CONCEPT
JinGoo Musical Birdcage Lamp Design Features
Awarded the Silver A’ Lighting Products and Projects Design Award in Lighting, the JinGoo merges elegant eastern aesthetics with innovative lighting and superb sound quality.
The wire birdcage exterior features a spacious vertical design with a usable hook top for hanging. The cages come in white and black and the open, airy design favors an unobstructed view of the beautiful ceramic bird light centerpiece.
Fired in traditional kilns by the ceramic masters in Yingge district, the decorative ceramic bird wraps its elegant wings around the LED light. The beautifully rendered bird comes in solid colors and patterns to suit traditional and contemporary décors.
Choices include: White Hwamei (pure white, resembling the “bird of luck” from Chinese folklore), Feathered China (a classic blue and white china pattern), The Lovebird (bright green with violet flowers), L’oiseau Blue (from the French fairy tale) and The Phoenix (a symbol of eternity in black and gold).
Distinctive wood grains accent the base of the audio lamp, with Chinese fir on the white birdcages and Taiwan acacia wood on the black cages.
How the Musical Birdcage Lamp Works
The JinGoo runs on powerful lithium batteries and energy saving LED bulbs for up to 15 hours of light and music.
