Gantri asked me to design a lamp for their new collection of 3d printed lighting. Taking a hands-on approach to ideation, I created a series of prototypes with unique elements of interaction. One stood out, resembling the familiar gesture of giving, characterized by its bowed head and the empty vessel in its base. This gesture became the conceptual foundation of the design. Suyo was created to be an object of warmth, tactility, and emotion. It combines thoughtful formal qualities with the utilities of light and storage to become equal parts friend and function.
