On a trip to Mongolia, Fukasawa was drawn to the glowing shape of traditional nomadic Pao tents and how they illuminated the landscape at night. The resulting Pao lighting collection has been designed to encapsulate the same atmospheric warmth and friendliness we associate with the safety of home. The elegant Table Lamp, crafted from opal glass, creates a beautiful, alluring glow that offers a practical task lighting as well as creating an inviting, homely aura. Perfect for use as a bedside light, or positioned on a side or coffee table in a living room, the elegant table lamp embodies a simple design of minimalist harmony.
