The company recently saw the competition of it's 10th year and chose to celebrate the same over a 10 course meal for 50 guests.

Working prototype of a 'fluttering heart' using

Giant hearts constructed out of bamboo slivers and covered in cloth. These lamps were inspired by the famous 'Noguchi' Lamps.
