Brooklyn-based design studio Rich Brilliant Willing have introduced a series of hanging LED lanterns inspired by the industrious silkworm.
The Mori lantern by Rich Brilliant Willing is a spray coat pendant shaped by two crossed-wire hoops.
Available in four varying shapes and sizes, the Mori is the result of a multi-step process. The fixture is made by dispersing fine threads around a crossed-wire steel frame. A matte lacquer is then applied to coat and seal the threads, creating a highly durable webbed skin with a pleasing tactile finish.
Bombyx mori, a silkmoth and metamorphosed relative of the silkworm, is the fixture's namesake and is incredibly fitting, considering this LED pendant's glowing cocoon-like effect.
