Net Lamp by Ryosuke Fukusada
If Ernesto Neto’s genitalia art was turned into lighting, it might possibly resemble the work of Ryosuke Fukusada, a Japanese designer currently based in Milan and working for Patricia Urquiola. Where the Brazilian artist – who happens to be having a show in NYC right now – uses crocheted netting to lift us off the ground, Fukusada uses compressed netting to lift LED lamps off the ground, and hold them in place.
Net Lamp’s structure is actually quite genius – 2 metal discs support each side of the cylindrical net. The compressed knitting holds the LED globe in place but also allows you to move it freely throughout the net.
