The Basket-Lamp by Nendo, a design studio based in Tokyo, Japan, is a light fixture that is modern and minimalist with a nice touch of intricacy people will appreciate for many reasons. Inspired by the wire netting 'kana-ami’ cooking utensils made by Kyoto artisans for yudofu, it boasts a flattened lampshade that could also be likened to a spider's web.

Created for Kanaami-Tsuji, the Basket-Lamp by Nendo "preserves the craft’s traditions and develops it for contemporary living and future generations," as written on the latter's website. When lit, the lampshape casts an artistic shadow that highlights the sculptural aspect of its design. Available in black and white, the Basket-Lamp by Nendo is powder coated for a matte finish in order to bring out the details more. Stats for Wire-Netted Lighting Trending: This Quarter & Buzzing
