MOTO

Discipline: Product

A light whose shade changes shape. With the movement of the frame, a single light can be configured and enjoyed in various ways; with changes to the shape of the light come changes to its expression of the light and shadow. As such, the shape of the light can be altered according to the time of the day or how the users spend their time. We’ve continued making umbrellas in Japan since the mid 1800s, and it is because of our detailed knowledge of umbrellas that we’ve been able to create this simple, highly mobile, airy light, a light that utilizes the framework of an umbrella in its design.
