Bowing Lamp

Federico Churba’s Hanoi lamp acquires it’s volume from the complex bending of a single sheet of PMMA (an economical and BPA-free alternative to polycarbonate). The shade which resembles the traditional conical asian hat, and footed base together appear to make a bow of greeting, while the downward diffused light creates a warm and cozy glow that adds to it’s overall elegance.

Designer: Frederico Churba for Prandina

    What a chic design! Thanks for posting!

  • I'm torn. On the one hand, beautiful bent material forming a clean design. On another hand, the ugly wire sticking out of the top: poorly resolved. On the final hand, my discomfort with the 'coolie' hat iconography. Net: needs work.

    Cheers,
    Mike

    I agree with Mike, it's a beautiful sleek design, but the wire at the top interferes.
