Design by Neri and Hu, 2009.
Inspired by a made-believe folklore story of an Asian emperor & a beautiful nightingale?
Once upon a time an Asian emperor was given a nightingale as a gift. The bird was so beautiful and sang in such a bewitching way that the emperor fell immediately in love with it and decided to keep it forever by his side. So the nightingale was put in a beautiful, majestic cage in the imperial chambers & became the delight of the emperor?s days?Neri & Hu took on a modern translation of this story and produced a collection of pendant/floor/desk lamps in stained woven bamboo. The poetics of an emperor?s life, a life no longer relevant in today?s world, can be abstracted in the form of an object such as the light. The use of hand-crafted bamboo weaving in an industrial product creates an elegant yet uncanny design statement. A lamp so particular & majestic that it could become your personal nightingale? forever by your side to brighten up your days.
