Mini Mikado Suspension Light
Design by Miguel Herranz, 2005.
Two stamped wooden veneer sheets, mounted to a pattern which lends them torsion and dynamism, make up the shade of the Mini Mikado lamp. The stamped wooden strips design in the air a shape charged with sensuality, as well as adding an overall lightness to the piece and creating interesting plays of light and shadow. The strips give the shade a volumetric richness that changes according to the viewing angle.
LZF's wood veneers are selected to reveal the best natural wood grain effects when illuminated and all have been sourced from forests certified by the Forest Stewardship Council - FSC. Nothing comes close to the beauty of these veneers as a diffusion material and no other veneer treatment gives the strength and the protection to the material without sacrificing the delicacy and subtleness that this natural material communicates when illuminated.
Available in choice of colors, with brushed nickel canopy and detailing.
The Mikado family of fixtures won the Design Plus prize in the 2006 edition of Light and Building in Frankfurt, and 2008 Good Design Award.
