Webbed fabric is stretched over crossed wire hoops to form these cocoon-like pendant lamps by New York studio Rich Brilliant Willing.
The collection of Mori lamps by Rich Brilliant Willing is named after a type of moth that emerges from the chrysalides of transformed silkworms.
"Bombyx Mori, a silkmoth and metamorphosed relative of the silkworm, is the fixture's namesake and is incredibly fitting, considering this LED pendant's glowing cocoon-like effect," said the studio.
To create the translucent pendants, a skin of webbed material was stretched over the thin steel hoops to form a tensile cover.
A layer of white matte lacquer was then sprayed over the material to coat and seal the threads, resulting in a durable shades.
When the LED bulb inside is illuminated, a soft glow permeates through the membrane and the metal frame becomes more visible.
Four rounded shapes with variations in height and width form the collection, which was launched during New York design week last month.
The designs can be installed as individual elements or a cluster featuring combinations of the different sizes.
We've also featured another lighting collection shown during New York design week, which includes brass designs that imitate the shapes of unfurling plants and musical instruments by Roll & Hill.
