The Nuno Pendant Lamp may look like a papier mache project, but it instead employs a traditional Japanese technique that involves cloth. This technique is known as 'nuno,' hence the light fixture's name. It involves layering and adhering the cloth onto a resin surface, in this case a lampshade.

Designed by Nendo for Vibia, the Nuno Pendant Lamp comes in three different shapes. Soft and subtle, they could easily be mistaken for modern and minimalist Chinese lanterns. When turned on, however, it becomes apparent that it is something more. The sporadic layering job gives the Nuno Pendant Lamp a tonal range of up to 24 gradations for the shadows. This organic pattern softly diffuses the light. Stats for Papier Mache-Like Lighting Trending: Older & Chilly
