DIY: Instant Light Made from a Fishing Basket

Issue 2 · Salle de Bain · January 9, 2012

Spotted in the home of Hitoshi Uchida: a vintage fishing basket repurposed as a pendant light.

It's among the many details we admire in Uchida's home in Kamakura, Japan, which was featured recently on The Selby. For those not traveling to global antique markets (Uchida is the proprietor of cult favorite J'Antiques Tokyo), we went trawling for sources for creating something similar.
