The award-winning Hong Kong based design duo Lim+Lu has in collaboration with Lucie Kaas explored the idea of interpreting the traditional lantern. The result is Moonbeam made from ribbed, frosted, white glass and steel.
It’s not childhood memories alone that make the traditional lantern such a cherished object to the Chinese design duo established by Elaine Lu and Vincent Lim. The built-in flexibility of the lantern has also fascinated the two designers.
"Traditionally, lanterns were carried at night to illuminate one's path. Upon arriving at their destination, the lanterns would be set on a surface or hung up to provide lighting for the space. That flexibility was important for us to integrate in the Moonbeam collection," says Vincent Lim.
"In collaboration with Lucie Kaas we have taken an Asian icon and reinterpreted it, so it fits the aesthetics of Scandinavian design characterized by simple a minimalistic expression combined with functionality. To us it's important that design both compliments and challenges the users. Design must provoke an emotional response. Design is made for people, it should trigger the senses," says Elaine Lu.
