Yamagiwa, a lighting design manufacturing and distribution company, presented a lamp called 'Moonbird' by Japanese designer Yukio Hashimoto in Milan earlier this year.

The form is reminiscent of a lone crane. Individual pieces can be stained or painted to compliment a variety of decor.

Yukio Hashimoto carved the individual prototype lamps from wood. "I designed this lamp with the image of a bird perched silently under the moonlight in mind," Hashimoto said.

Implications - Consumers are turning to products with nature-inspired designs to combat the recent insurgence of technological advances. Corporations looking to produce items with mass appeal to consumers may consider making goods with nature-inspired design elements.
