Kibako Wall Lamp by Mathias Astúa and Louis Maucout

French-Brazilian furniture designer Mathias Astúa and Paris-based designer Louis Maucout have together created the Kibako wall lamp cum shelf. When turned on, the Kibako acts as a wall lamp “that puts in confrontation the traditional Japanese lamp, the an-don, with the abstraction of modernity.” Turned off, the Kibako becomes a simple wall shelf, presenting itself as the “simplest expression of a an-don volume: a rectangular parallelepiped.”
