1.625 m / s2 ( moon, sun )

The moon is the most well-known indirect lighting known to humanity.
It receives light from the sun and gently shines above us, and is strongly associated with our feelings from ancient
times.

 

    Just like the moon, this lighting equipment receives light from external environments and appears to shine gently to our eyes. The objects shine as they float within the air, as if they are free from gravity.

    It has flexibility on usage, and is able to manipulate the light source differently depending on the user. For example, it can be placed near your favorite floor lamp, or by a window hit with sunshine. This product is capable of adorning light existing in varying sceneries.

    The form is designed by meticulously calculating the contrast between the white and black in order to display the light in the most appealing way. After all, the beauty of the moon is emphasized by the darkness of night. The individual objects rotate in their own orbits, and the white and black surfaces appear and disappear just like the waxing and waning of the moon.  This lighting equipment is a challenge to explore the new relationship between the traditional lamp and shade, and the work itself is a result of the visualization process of light. With the little shade like objects freely dancing in space, this work can be said that it is a lighting equipment that doesn’ t have a light source of its own.

    Sample(01)  To the eye it appears to have dark colors and a texture similar to a surface of a rock with glimpse of sparkles seen in ore minerals. When felt it is soft like a sponge, and you realize that the material has deceived you with its looks. This experimental material has been created with a new processing method.   

 

Sample(01)

To the eye it appears to have dark colors and a texture similar to a surface of a rock with glimpse of sparkles seen in
ore minerals. When felt it is soft like a sponge, and you realize that the material has deceived you with its looks.
This experimental material has been created with a new processing method.

 

    The research process of strengthening a soft material was indeed very interesting. It challenged the natural principles, and the admiration for strength led to the rock like texture, which enabled me to create a new element that embodies contradiction.

    This gives freedom to the materials that have been traditionally used internally in products, where it may be applied in an environment of our living space such as a part of a chair, a cushion, or a kid’ s playroom.
