Moon

This sophisticated pendant lamp by Brian Kirk, available in diameters from 40 cm to 120 cm, features a dual-layer shade. The inner layer, possibly made of fine veneer, allows light to filter through, creating a soft, diffused glow, while the robust outer layer prevents direct glare. It provides functional downward lighting and beautiful upward reflections. Inspired by the Japanese concept of 'komorebi', which describes sunlight filtering through leaves, this lamp beautifully mimics this natural effect. It offers a blend of practical illumination and aesthetic elegance, ideal for contemporary spaces.

Moon R

Inspired by the Japanese concept of 'komorebi'—light filtering through leaves—the Moon R lamp mimics this natural effect. Its spherical shape and structure of either veneer or metal slats obscure the light source, scattering light like sunlight through foliage. This design creates a serene, ambient atmosphere reminiscent of a forest understory on a sunny day, efficiently illuminating the space below while softly diffusing light above. Brian Kirk's Moon series captures the essence of 'komorebi', bringing a tranquil touch of nature into interior spaces.

Ellipse

Brian Kirk's Elipse lamp design cleverly combines functionality with aesthetic appeal, using wooden shades to create shapes that change from elliptical to circular depending on the viewing angle. This design effectively manipulates light, gently dispersing it upwards and downwards while shielding the eyes from direct sources. The gaps between the shades allow for a soft diffusion of light, enhancing visibility without overwhelming the space.

This thoughtful design not only serves its primary purpose of lighting but also enriches the living space, demonstrating how design can seamlessly integrate utility with subtle, elegant aesthetics.
