Taiwanese design studio Kimu launched a table lamp version of the New Old Light shade. Kimu’s New Old Light is a hybrid design that combines Eastern and Western design sensibilities. Suspended by its turned wood lamp holder in the center of a thin, black metal frame, the shade of the New Old Light table lamp combines a traditional Chinese paper lantern with a Western-style industrial enamel shade. To adjust the direction and intensity of light, the extendable paper shade can be pulled down to create an ambient soft light, and pushed up for a more direct light.
Kimu is a Taipei-based design studio that launched its first collection in 2011.
