japanese designer kaori aoi creates home products under the moniker innocent blue.  driven by modernist optimism,
her designs feature novel ways of integrating more light into the home.  an oversized ring-turned-lamp,
‘ring light’, for instance, subverts expectations of scale as well as a diamond’s natural light source.

shaped like a diamond, the exposed construction of ‘shine’ chair allows simply for light to pass through its hollow structure. 
the name of the project also draws attention to the natural luminosity of its referent.

intended for adults and children alike, the toy is designed to combat the mentality of mass consumer culture
and to encourage the development of imagination and creativity.
