At Salone Internazionale Del Mobile: Japanese Muku Lanterns

Japanese Muku Lanterns¬†at first glance looks out of place in todays A&D scene which is dominated by sleek lines, bright hues and modern styles. However this is intentional by designers Tasuo Yamamoto and Jun Hashimoto and we applaud their move to ignore contemporary rhythm and experiment with traditional styles. The two lanterns have been inspired by traditional japanese lamps called ‘Ouchi Andon’ but the designer duo have given their own subtle modern twist to them. The lanterns have been made from different materials including aluminum, acrylic a, wood and will be exhibited during the Milan Design Week 2010.
