Pampshade "Real Bread" Lights
Having noticed how delicious bread has the power to make people feel happy and warm, Japanese artist and baker Yukiko Morita created Pampshade to harness this delicate charm and to let "the delicious light of bread gently illuminate".
Brilliantly crafted from just-baked artisan breads, each light is one of a kind. To create the light within the bread's crust, the inside is hollowed out (and kept for use in other recipes, no crumb goes to waste (also, if possible, unsold breads are used)). 50,000 hour LED lights are carefully placed inside and the bread is coated with an anti-bacterial and anti-fungal resin to protect and seal the lamp for years to come. All products are made at Yukiko's workshop in Japan.
"The more we understand bread, all the more we fall in love with bread" - Yukiko
