PAO GLASS TABLE LAMP

PAO GLASS TABLE LAMP

From 389 GBP

The Pao collection of lamps is an exciting collaboration with established Japanese designer Naoto Fukasawa. Named after the soft, glowing shape of traditional Mongolian Pao tents illuminated at night-time, Fukasawa set out to encapsulate the same atmospheric warmth and friendliness in the Pao Table Lamp. Pao draws on Fukasawa’s aesthetic of beautiful simplicity; creating an everyday object that draws on design values existing in the natural world. By keeping the aesthetics modest and simple, he brings the design into harmony with its environment, reinforcing his primary intention of making the atmosphere pleasant and comfortable. In the Pao Table Lamp, Naoto Fukasawa has developed a way of concealing the custom LED light source from view, keeping it nestled inside the shade to give the lamp a clean, unbroken visual identity. Both base and shade are made in opal glass, offering a functionality and deliberate simplicity of design that make them suitable for a wide range of spaces and uses in domestic and corporate environments.
