for his latest creation, japanese designer kazuhiro yamanaka brings about an unexpected twist to lighting furniture with his collapsible moon lamp. thanks to a photo reflecting structure, the user can manipulate the object in such a way to make it expand or collapse.
for the lighting feature, kazuhiro yamanaka has embedded a LED strip which is located inside the edge of the spring steel frame — towards the center of the circle. as a result, the extended surface of the lamp illuminates itself like a full moon. the colors of the LED can also be changed to obtain different hues and ambiances.
