My recent trip to Japan re-energized my creative energies. The land of the rising sun epitomizes the dichotomy of the kind of design I favor; the whimsical and minimal. The clean design aesthetic you normally associate with Scandinavia is mixed with tradition in a way that’s uniquely Japanese. The Doll lamp by Foscarini reminds me of this confluence. Inspired by Japanese kokeshi dolls, the Doll lamp is minimalist in the strictest sense besides coming in four colors (red, green, ivory, grey). The kind of whimsical minimalism I was talking about.
