BAI COLLECTION

BY NERI&HU

Inspired by ancient Chinese paper lanterns, the Bai collection by Shanghai based designers Neri&Hu elegantly blends oriental traditions, artisanal craftsmanship and contemporary design. Glass and solid metal work replace paper and wires in this set of twenty first century lanterns. The inspiration clearly shines through, as the bright core of each piece mimics the candle in the original lantern. The deliberately imperfect finish on the metalwork adds a sense of character to each member of the Bai family, balancing the restraint and simplicity inherent to the design.
