Weight-Based Lanterns
Junji Kawabe’s Functional Art Piece is Sure to Light up Any Room

Lamps are common articles in most households nowadays, but having one as a functional art piece isn’t as commonplace.

These weight-based lamps hold a simplistic functionality, which is that light emitted from these lanterns are based on the amount of weight that will be placed on top of them. The more weight that is allotted on the scale the brighter the light shines. The design concept for these ingenious weight discriminating lamps are from artist Junji Kawabe.

With people wanting flashier and more extravagant means of outfitting their homes and their lives for that matter, it’s refreshing to see a simplistic approach to an instrument that’s been a part of daily human life for several years.
