In the last 2 or 3 years I’ve seen a lot of Japanese designers experimenting with translucent ceramics. But this translucent ceramic lamp is a stunning example of the potential for this material, when applied to product design. I love the stark contrast between appearances when the lamp is turned on and off! Hat tip to designer Hikaru Yajima, who just recently announced the launch of these TOU-LIGHT pendant lamps.

I’m not sure how compatible they are with overseas voltage and whatnot, but the lamps are available in Large (24,150 yen) and Small (19,950 yen) sizes. If you’re interested White Rabbit Express can assist with your order.
