Material Experiment for Nendo.
Included in the Farming net collection, designed with Oki Sato and Nendo design team.
A collection of sculptural structures made by heat-forming agricultural nets. The lamps softly emit light, in the manner of a traditional Japanese paper lantern.
The action of gently wrapping something and close attention to the texture of the surface endow these objects with the very particular sense of expression found only in Japan, since ancient times.
Each lantern is carefully formed by heat-forming agricultural nets ordinarily placed around fruit and vegetables to prevent them from harm by wind and animals. The nets are stronger than organdy but more flexible than wire mesh.
