Smash lighting fixtures by Nendo for the Tokyo Fiber ‘09 "Senseware" exhibition, are a beautiful, effervescent mushroom-like example of experimental LED lighting. Tapping Japanese synthetic fiber technology, each lamp is unique due to the heat-activated production technique, and made of virtually rip-proof, super light-weight (and therefore carbon footprint reducing) thermoplastic, according to DesignBoom. Strips of bamboo are wrapped around a wood frame, then finished with Japanese Mulberry paper and low-heat LED bulbs.
