Concept Statement: Mito is an exercise in balance and proportion, with feature reflectors carefully balanced along a fine thread-like stem – hence the name. The Mito lighting series was designed to celebrate the natural beauty and character of raw materials. Minimal in design, Mito juxtaposes precision manufacturing techniques with natural hand finished timber and stone to create a truly sculptural light. Warm, indirect light flows across domed forms carefully crafted from natural materials, and can be used to create flexible accent lighting effects through rotating the reflectors. Modular in design, the Mito series may be configured at any angle and comes in a variety of both wall sconce and floor lamp configurations.
