designer tong ho collaborated with craftsman tsun-jen lee to produce ‘lantern’ as part of the initiative of taiwanese design brand yii who showcased an exhibition at triennale di milano during milan design week 2011.

the lantern is styled with a classic appearance and combined with new technologies. the body of the lamp is ceramic, and features a bamboo hand. fitted with an inner LED system, this version of a traditional taiwanese lamp reveals its decoration only when lit. the mobile lantern can be recharged from a ground base.

  • I’m wondering if I can purchase these lovely lanterns through the Designboom site, or is there somewhere else I can order them from? I am in Canada, but am happy to purchase from any country.
    Thanks very much!
