Rock Garden by Kazuhiro Yamanaka for Pallucco

Inspired by Japanese rock gardens, Kazuhiro Yamanaka designed the Rock Garden ceiling lamp for Pallucco. In the gardens, a large portion of the rock is hidden below the ground while part of it remains in view, like an iceberg. Each rock has its own story and beauty about it, and when placed together, they form a relationship.

The lamp is made up of a single pyramidal shape, and in the larger version, multiple pyramid shapes, which are similar to a garden. With the larger version, you can place the shapes in your own configuration in the rectangular frame.

Rock Garden will be on the market in September 2012.
