NATURE INSPIRED

MOAI WALL LIGHT
MOAI Wall Light was born from the challenge of reinterpreting the famous MOAI statues of Easter Island into a contemporary lighting piece. Created by the Rapa Nui people, these statues are a symbol of authority and power which stand tall and proud on one of the most remote islands in the world. A marble wall light that isn’t for the ones with lack of strength. As a reinterpretation of the statues, MOAI Wall Light also stands proud in any home décor.
Materials: Carrara marble.

KOI STOOL
KOI carp is a recurring symbol of Japanese culture, highly appreciated by its decorative purposes, not only in water gardens but also in Irezumi practice or, most commonly, in tattoos. Its natural colour mutations reveal their capacity to adapt just like the set of KOI tables with table tops in glass or marble that one can choose to better fit in one’s ambience. The KOI scales from the sides of the tables shine and reflect – on its brass surface – the sun caught throughout the clear water. KOI and the Japanese word for love or affection are homophones, making the carp also a symbol of love and friendship.
Materials: Brushed brass, green and black marble.

NAICCA SUSPENSION LIGHT
A brass lamp that recalls the Giant Crystal Caves in Mexico, NAICCA Suspension Light represents the legend of crystal origins – created to represent the dancing soul motion. The brass structure and the quartz crystal of NAICCA Suspension Light merge together in this contemporary lighting to brighten your spirit with a dancing touch.
Materials: Vintage brass

FRONTIER DIGITAL ART
A line that divides time and space. A hazy aerial vision that seeds the doubt between what is the present and what is the past. What is destruction and what is existence. But the line prevails, reminding us how easy it is to establish a frontier, even without a clear vision. That is the feeling that FRONTIER Digital Art reflects. Unclear visions establish limited frontiers only by looking down.
Materials: Structure: Photography, Black Frame
Technique: Digital art work
