emperor suspension lamp

Design Neri&Hu, 2009
Bamboo rattan cage, aluminum, glass
Made in The Netherlands by Moooi

This oversized light was inspired by a made-believe folklore story of an Asian emperor & a beautiful nightingale…Once upon a time an Asian emperor was given a nightingale as a gift. The bird was so beautiful and sang in such a bewitching way that the emperor fell immediately in love with it and decided to keep it forever by his side. So the nightingale was put in a beautiful, majestic cage in the imperial chambers & became the delight of the emperor's days…Neri & Hu took on a modern translation of this story and produced a collection of pendant/floor/table lamps in stained woven bamboo. The poetics of an emperor's life, a life no longer relevant in today's world, can be abstracted in the form of an object such as the light. The use of hand-crafted bamboo weaving in an industrial product creates an elegant yet uncanny design statement. A lamp so particular & majestic that it could become your personal nightingale…forever by your side to brighten up your days.

The Emperor collection includes suspension, floor and table lamps. They are offered with a glass diffuser that creates a very warm glow of light. Each cage is woven by hand and therefore has a unique character. The suspension lamp has a steel chrome canopy.
