The making of ‘Inhale’ pendant lamp by Nendo for Lasvit

The ultra-prolific Japanese design practise Nendo has collaborated with a Czech manufacturer of bespoke light fittings and glass installations Lasvit on this delicate, organically-shaped pendant light called ‘Inhale’. Owing its name to the innovatory production process, in which the form is obtained by a negative air pressure, the design was exhibited as part of Nendo’s delicate, all-white ‘Still & Sparkling’ installation during this year’s edition of Milan’s Salone del Mobile.

More about ‘Inhale’:


‘This lamp was formed by blowing glass into the form of an air bubble then sucking the air away. Ordinarily, glass is made by blowing air into the molten material. The inhale lamp, on the other hand, comes from the act of exhaling.’
