Description/

This delicate, red-waxy flower is a rare kind of parasitic Ghost-plant. This translucent plant, which requires no light to grow as it sits on the dark forest floor, would be right at home in a fairytale. Using digital modeling, laser 3D printing, and Chinese lacquer craft, the form and texture of these fascinating floral shapes, enlarged twenty times, become a cluster of lighting pieces. Digital manufacturing allows for the creation of individual partitions, which can be arranged in an endless variety of ways. Hand-crafted Chinese lacquer provides the means to express different life-stages of this organic form, making each cluster of flowers, just as in nature, truly unique.

Materials: Carbon Fiber, Chinese Lacquer.


NaiHan Li

designer

Jingjing Naihan Li is an architect-turned-furniture-designer whose works reflect what she calls “the moody impracticality of globe-trotting.” Li studied design and architecture at London’s Bartlett School of Architecture, and early on in her career collaborated on a design project with the renowned Chinese artist Ai Weiwei. Her best-known series, titled “The CRATES,” was inspired by the shipping crates used for transporting artwork and her own experience living in “Beijing’s shifting urban playground where industrial and artist spaces are quickly discovered and soon destroyed,” as she says. The works in “The CRATES” are modular items of everyday furniture—such as bookshelves, beds, and armchairs—that fold up into compact crates for easy transportation. The series was nominated for the 2012 Design of the Year Award by the Design Museum in London. Li has also produced design projects in collaboration with Swarovski and the Gwangju Biennial, among others.
