Shanghai-based studio Neri & Hu describes its work as sparking a new modern Chinese aesthetic. In 2010, Neri & Hu collaborated for the first time with Dutch group Moooi, creating a light inspired by ancient Chinese folklore that tells a tale of an emperor and a beautiful nightingale’s song.
As one of the latest additions to the Moooi lighting collection, the Emperor suspension light celebrates the traditions of Chinese craftsmanship, while telling stories of the past. Each bamboo and rattan cage is woven by hand so every piece is unique to the individual who made it. Finished with an aluminium frame and a glass diffuser, the Emperor collection comes in three sizes and is available in either a red or black stain. The Emperor suspension light is available from Space Furniture.
