A light in darkness.. .

The ‘Mayuhana Ma’ black lamp by Toyo Ito for Yamagiwa; ‘it is the quintessential quality of light found in Japan that reminds me of ‘in praise of shadows’ by Junichiro Tanizaki,’ says the Japanese architect. Originally designed in white, the black version refers to the japanese kanji character ‘真(MA)’, which means true or genuine — thus the creation of a darker, deeper more profound coloured lamp that embodies the tonal qualities of ‘墨(SUMI)’ which refers to Japanese calligraphy ink.
