The Kino Lamps are sculptural light fixtures that happen to look like overgrown mushrooms. The way they rise to the sky and seamlessly end with a hat-like top is very reminiscent of common fungi. The comparison is especially undeniable when the Kino Lamps are grouped together.

Designed by Emmanuel Gardin of Krizalidstudio, a design studio based in Liege, Belgium, the Kino Lamps are made out of a single bent plywood sheet as well as aluminum. Finished with a wooden base, which acts as a counterbalance, the Kino Lamps are available in three different sizes.

Although the Kino Lamps initially have a clean and simple existence, there is something that goes beyond that. Beautiful to behold, they offer an organic appeal that many urban people will appreciate.
