The Inhale Lamp Was Quirkily Shaped in the Glassblowing Process

The Inhale Lamp looks just like what its name implies. It is as though somehow had put their mouth on the top of the glass dome and sucked in to create a caved-in aesthetic. Of course, that's essentially what has happened. But instead of a random person sucking in an already formed and cooled down glass light fixture, the Inhale Lamp was given its shape during the glassblowing process when the material was still very much malleable.

Designed by Oki Sato of Nendo for the Czech glassmakers Lasvit, the Inhale Lamp marks one of the Japan-based design studio's first forays into glassblowing. It is part of the same collection as the one that features the Press Lamp. It has a subtle, minimalist and almost organic design.
