'Emperor' table lamp by Neri & Hu for moooi
The Shanghai based practice Neri & Hu designed this series of lamps for the Dutch manufacturer moooi. Hand-made from bamboo and rattan ‘Emperor’ reflects the designers’s intention very well: the accentuation of contemporary Chinese design and traditional Chinese handcraft.

This successful conversion of a 1930s Japanese Army headquarter into a 19-room boutique hotel, located at the new Cool Docks development on the South Bund District of Shanghai, was realised by the locally based Neri & Hu Design and Research Office. The architectural concept behind NHDRO’s renovation rests on a clear contrast of what is old and new.
