Japanese retailer Yamagiwa is offering this sculptural, transforming lamp designed by architect and designer Kisa Kawakami. The adjustable lamp, called the 'Kisawing,' is made of Japanese cedar and paper covered acrylic sheets. Shadow and light is playfully reflected among the lamp's six wings. Both the natural world and modern forms intermingle in this amazing folding lamp.
