Cocoon-like effect: Mori by Rich Brilliant Willing

Brooklyn-based design studio Rich Brilliant Willing introduced a series of hanging LED lanterns inspired by the silkworm.  The Mori lantern 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 durable webbed skin with a tactile finish.

Bombyx mori, a silk moth and metamorphosed relative of the silkworm, is the fixture’s namesake. Befitting its namesake, the LED pendant has a glowing cocoon-like effect.

Rich Brilliant Willing is a lighting and furniture design manufacturer. It was founded in 2007 by RISD graduates Theo Richardson, Charles Brill and Alexander Williams.
