Light by Tianyi Shi

Soft Light by Tianyi Shi The inspiration of Soft Light comes from the feeling of touching foam, softness and warmth. It is hard to change foam’s shape, which is like a stubborn child. The stubborn foam may nod or bow under pressure, but get back into shape soon. Appreciating the beautiful texture in the cover makes people feel relaxed and peaceful. It can always be with one who feels lonely. White and square from implies a simple and quiet feeling. Instead of hard it offers a softness feeling to people who touch it. Additionally, it can be turned on by pressing it!
