Lantern Lighting Series By Mario Tsai

View all 14 Photos

“Use less, design better.” This is one of the creative mantras of Mario Tsai, a Chinese product and industrial designer who has a penchant for designing simple and elegant furniture and lighting that complement their good looks with plenty of character and charm. Inspired by ancient Chinese lanterns, the Lantern series boasts a clean, modern aesthetic. The clean lines evoke memories of the past through contemporary design, while the refined appearance complements any decor.

The collection includes a desk lamp and a floor lamp as well as a hanging pendant light. All of them feature a metal capsule-shaped frame. Customers can choose between two different types of lampshades. The metal mesh allows the light to escape through small perforations, while the colored glass lampshades create a softer or warmer light. Made of steel and glass, the Lantern series suits home interiors, office spaces as well as commercial properties and restaurants. Photographs© Mario Tsai.
