A Favorite Light Goes Dark: The Koushi Lamp in Black

October 24, 2017

A longtime favorite light of ours has gone to the dark side: the ethereal Koushi lamp, which Remodelista contributor Izabella first spotted at Merci in Paris back in 2011. It’s the work of Paris-based American photographer Mark Eden Schooley, handmade using steel wire wrapped in semi-opaque cotton voile.
