Lacquer family, NINE, 2023

The shape of the lampshade owes its presence to Japanese lacquer bowls. I started this project by designing the small size, as my first image was of a lacquer bowl hanging upside down from the ceiling. The project grew as we further developed, and we decided to add a few bigger siblings. It is hard to see from the photos, but we found great detail in the light diffuser shape during its development; we added a concave to the diffuser surface so it is hidden inside the lampshade when seeing It at a certain height, and it magically happened to spread the light to almost 180 degrees wide!
