Over the last two years, Hiroto Yoshizoe, a Japanese spatial designer, drew inspiration from primitive elements such as water and light

For his first show in Milan, he presented ‘1.625m/s2’ collection , which consists of a work that challenges the boundaries as a new lampshade that plays on the relationship between the moon and the sun. 1.625m/s2 emphasizes the elements of  Time, Change and Movement: the key themes of Hiroto’ s design aesthetics.

Just like the moon, this lighting equipment receives light from external environments and appears to shine gently to our eyes. It has flexibility on usage, and is able to manipulate the light source differently depending on the user.

The form is designed by meticulously calculating the contrast between the white and black in order to display the light in the mostappealing way. After all, the beauty of the moon is emphasized by the darkness of night.
