presented at maison et objet 2013 in paris, the table lamp entitled ‘ban-sang’ by designer dongho so is influenced by traditional korean ‘ban sang gi’ kitchenware. carefully varnished using the same ott-chil lacquer in typical asian restaurants, the wooden concept re-interprets traditional bowls for rice and soup, a spoon and chopsticks into components for a functional lighting object. appearing as if they were floating in mid-air, the bowls serve as the lamp shade and base, supported by a spoon and set of chopsticks which act as the main structure.

  • Thank you! This is one new lamp that sort of cuts the others down to size.
    I have been so disappointed when I saw yet another lamp produced that tried to do something different and yet did not.
    For me, this throws sand in the face of all of the supposedly sophisticated re-dos of the same old thing.
    It makes me smile.
