The Fire Within: A Wood Pendant Light with Charred Interior

Issue 97 · Autumn in Japan · November 6, 2013

Spotted while lurking on Kitka (the design blog of John Baker and Juli Daoust, owners of Mjolk in Toronto): an organic wood pendant lamp with a charred interior reminiscent of Japanese shou sugi ban timber. A prototype designed by Karen Hare and Jason Hare, a Winnipeg design duo, the lamp was a winner at the recent SHADE International Lighting Design and was on display at MAKE Coffee + Stuff in Winnipeg.

Did you know that the Japanese also use charred wood as a building material? See Remodeling 101: Shou Sugi Ban Wood as Siding and Flooring.
