Studio Kimu is formed by Lin YiHsien, Shih Hsiao Chun and Yeh TingWei. The three designers from Taiwan presented a pendant light, which mixes eastern and western stereotypical designs and by combining them, a very playful lamp is created:
From the – at first sight – simple lampshade, a paper part which resembles the traditional Asian lantern can be pulled out.
It looks like a cocoon, which is growing out of the lampshade and transforms not only the shape of the lamp but also the quality of light.
Studio Kimu were part of the young talents competition [D3] CONTEST, which has developed into an established feature for both trade visitors and exhibitors at imm cologne. The [D3] CONTEST was curated by German Design Council.
