October 29, 2014

Have you ever admired the intricate wirework of classic handwoven Japanese cooking utensils, art objects in their own right? We have, so we took note when Tokyo design studio Nendo, in collaboration with Kyoto metal-weaving company Kanaami-Tsuji, released the Basket Lamp. Inspired by the handwoven wire netting of Japanese cooking utensils made by Kyoto artisans for centuries, the pendant lights cast spider-web-like shadows and float ethereally overhead (they’re especially appealing when grouped).
