Netting Geometry

The vessel is using the technique of interwoven netting to create the a hanging light fixture. The gap in between the the netting structure gives the interior view of the lantern which is also as rich as the exterior. Other than that, it also brings out consistent geometric shadow which will also transform the environment of the space.

The shape of the lantern is based on the red Chinese lantern but the middle part is flatten instead of having a full sphere shape. The lantern is design specifically to have holes and gaps so that the light source from the inside can travel outside. The gaps cannot be too big or to small so that the shadow produced is complex enough but not too much. The shadow also looks like the common motif for Islamic geometry.
