This lamp float in the air thanks to the attractive power of two magnent. The lamp lighting come with a surreal shape exagerated by the quite magic sistem that allows the lamp to float. The lamp shape comes from the desire to have the best performance about lightness and distance between the two magnets. Every details is drawn to emphatize the floating effect without loosing the first function as a lamp.
This project was to convert "Machiya", a Japanese traditional wooden townhouse, in the centre of Kyoto, into a small shop. The original wooden frames were reinforced with steel frames because the original building was dilapidated. I focused on the way accommodating necessary functions of a beauty cosmetic shop within the space limitations of the original "Machiya".
