The curves are finely crafted by artisans using a steel wire armature and bamboo ribbing. Artful washi paper wraps the piece as a sculptural shade brimming with fine texture. When turned on, the piece delights in its sculptural silhouette golden-glazed surface. The piece creates an unforgettable ambiance best served over a table or on the floor.
