Design Concept/Rationale: To reduce space by being able to expand when in use or be flattened to be stored away.

The Client: Artemide, carried in Singapore by Million Lighting, (http://www.artemide.com/home/index.action) (http://www.millionlighting.com.sg/aboutus.html)

Other Interesting Facts:

*IN-EI ISSEY MIYAKE lamps are made using 2 or 3D mathematical principles, where light and shade harmoniously alternate, resulting in sculpturesque forms that manipulate light and shadow in the most poetic way.

*The lamps are made of re-treated fibres derived from PET bottles; the bottles themselves are processed using an innovative technology that reduces both energy consumption and Co2 emission by up to 40%.
