A series of lamps built with polyurethane foam –a cheap insulator material used widely in construction.
These lamps counter the organic delicacy, lightness and subtlety of traditional Japanese aesthetics against its exuberant contemporary pop culture. Hypertrophy is cheap, but also whimsical. It is unapologetically artificial, but also tectonic. Used conventionally it is a mundane material, however when it is backlit it becomes translucent and somewhat hallucinogenic.
