Resembling sea urchins found from the intertidal to the deep ocean, these beautiful lanterns are constructed from polyester fabrics which have been twisted, compressed, and bound into precise patterns using shibori, an ancient Japanese tie-dyeing technique.
Designed by Hiroyuki Murase and maufactured by Suzusan, a German company he heads, the idea of these lamps is to "present the refined tridimensional fabrics as artworks of light”.
Each handcrafted shade is one-of-a-kind and comes in a variety of patterns and versions, including pendant and floor-standing models. And for those of you who insist everything in the household should be easy to maintain, you'd be pleased to know that they have been heat-treated to keep their shape and can be thrown into the washer for cleaning!
