Through this collaboration, we hoped to convey the movement of snow during an avalanche and its subsequent blanketing or shrouding of the mountain. For the scales, cut-mylar film and parchment paper were used to simulate an avalanche's growl, its deep and guttural strength, and its immense raw power. The overall interaction of light with this sculpture reveals the power of darkness and its strong influence in the aftermath.
Materials: Paper, Fiber Reinforced Polymer , Mylar, Metal

Fungi take death and give birth to anew. Inspired by the mushroom’s morphology, the fruiting body of “Shibo” is manipulated by shibori fabric that oozes vertical fluid lines. These run from the base through its shade. It seizes scrap metal to be plated with a hairline brass finish and gives luxury to the product. Many mushrooms form a symbiotic relationship between their root networks. This combined association of rigid (metal) and fluid (fabric) material will pattern a balance between art and design. Aside from its aesthetic, the lamp will reflect ambient and task lighting with a ball joint to its shade and allow the light to direct at a 360 degrees rotation conducive for working and sleeping.
Handcrafted to perfection, the product promotes hope and opportunities to local communities in the Philippines during this crisis. Let’s illuminate our sanctuary and preserve the existence of life.
