The Pao collection of lamps is an exciting collaboration with established Japanese designer Naoto Fukasawa. Named after the soft, glowing shape of traditional Mongolian Pao tents illuminated at night-time, Fukasawa set out to encapsulate the same atmospheric warmth and friendliness in the Pao Glass Pendant. Pao draws on Fukasawa’s aesthetic of beautiful simplicity; creating an everyday object that draws on design values existing in the natural world. By keeping the aesthetics modest and simple, he brings the design into harmony with its environment, reinforcing his primary intention of making the atmosphere pleasant and comfortable. In the Pao Glass Pendant, Fukasawa has developed a custom LED light source and diffuser, which is nestled within the opal glass shade, offering a functional output of light, whilst still enabling a warm, homely glow. The functionality and the deliberate simplicity of the design make it suitable for a wide range of spaces and uses in domestic and corporate environments.
