The designers by Kenji Fukushima Design Studio, that has offices in Japan and Sweden, have created a series of pendant lamps Wire Mesh Light. A round pendant lamp emits light through the mesh, made of copper wire by the Kanaami technique. This manual weaving was used traditionally for making kitchen utensils in Kyoto in Heian period in Japan (794 -1185 A.D.). The upper part of the lamp is made of also copper and completely hides the source of light.
