The Argentinian Federico Churba has designed the Hanoi table light for one of our favourite Italian manufacturers, Prandina. At one level, its anthropomorphism makes this design really cute. Here are the two sizes (father and son?) chatting,
However, Hanoi is also a complex and sophisticated form, cleverly constructed from a single sheet of white methacrylate, thermoformed into a three dimensional shape.
The heights of the two sizes are H29cm and H39cm. They will cast a diffused light downwards, mostly onto their own base. So their design function is to add a corner of ambient light -- and cutitude!
