Fabio Schiavetto and Riccardo Furlanetto’s ‘Keirei’, the word to bow in Japanese, is an outdoor lamp that “bows to nature” for Italy’s Torremato.

“A tribute to an oriental ritual that results in a lamp with the look of a tube bowed downwards with a strong expressive power.” says Torremato. “Glass and casting of iron bend in a surprising bow; the lamp expresses all its evocative potential thanks to the material charm and to the clean essentiality of the shapes.”

Keirei is “a silent sculpture that inhabits outdoor spaces with the typical discretion of the Japanese salute from which it takes its name”.
