Nuno lamps by Nendo for Vibia

April 23rd, 2013 by retail design blog

We layered and adhered cloth (‘nuno’ in Japanese) onto the surface of a resin-formed lampshade to create a lighting fixture that blends into the interior like a decorative object when extinguished, and creates complex and beautiful shadows when lit. Some points on the surface have only one cloth layer, while others have up to 24 layers, providing a tonal range of up to 24 gradations for the shadows.

Rather than arraying the shadows’ gradations geometrically, we experimented with the form and layout to create a richly heterogeneous surface with a particular softness. The nuno range includes six different pendant lamps, two table lamps and two floor lamps.
