each project that tomasz kudelski and kaito yamada have created for moon moth, showcases a distinct geometry with subtle and elegant cultural references. this geometry becomes materialized in the form of a unique composition of wooden blocks and thin metal rods. only a skilled eye will discover the star of david in the complex design of the constellation ceiling lamp or spot the rotation of equilateral triangles in the yuka floor lamp.

such a puzzle-like design requires a high precision of all components. both wooden blocks and metal parts are carefully crafted by family-owned, local producers with a multi-generational tradition. glass shades are mouth-blown in the łużyce glassworks. they are made of three-layer glass and finished with a special chemical treatment that gives them a matt surface and velvet touch.

one can choose between two different wood finishes. the first one is natural oak finished with oil wax, which together with the soft light of the milky shade creates a warm and tranquil composition. the second one is and black oak, darkened and matt finished with visible wood grain. this timeless and classic finish emphasizes the minimalist design and high quality of the products.
