Pino-9 Light from Kyoto Premium


Kyoto, a thriving city known for great creativity and the fine craftsmanship and skill of its designers, is the production center for Japan's highest quality textile crafts. In 2005, the Kyoto Premium project was organized by the Kyoto Chamber of Commerce and Industry to better promote and position traditional Kyoto crafts in the interior design field.

One example of great design is this Pino-9 light from Abita Architettura Design. It reminds me of a bonzai tree or a glowing cactus, warm and relaxing. I love the shape of the frame, it's very sculptural and almost fragile in appearance, yet a touch of danger with it's prickly enshuku-bai shibori tie dyed silk.

Unfortunately, I'm not sure how to purchase this light in the states, however, if you're interested in inquiring about Pino-9, please contact Yoshinobu Nishizawa at abita-s.p.a@abita.co.jp from ABITA ARCHITETTURA DESIGN S.p.A.
