for the lighting feature, kazuhiro yamanaka has embedded a LED strip which is located inside the edge of the spring steel frame —  towards the center of the circle. as a result, the extended surface of the lamp illuminates itself like a full moon. the colors of the LED can also be changed to obtain different hues and ambiances.
