The last day of biannual IFFT, getting tired of watching around, I find a guy who also looks tired of the fair playing his products.

The theme of the stand is “Urushi lacquer products from Fukushima”, so the project name is “Design F(Fukushima) Project.

Ryuma starts explaining the lamp. We can set the balls, which artisans chipped and shaved by hand and lacquered, as we like. Upside‐down pendants are telling relaxed and playful vision proposed by the designer, Makiko.

The lamps tells that a couple of billeboquets joined in a party in stunning dress and dinner jacket?!?
