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.

Suspension lights for diffused ambient illumination. Hand woven bamboo rattan "cage" with glass diffuser available in two sizes and choice of red or black. Each cage is woven by hand and therefor will be unique.
