霧/MOU

SALONE 2015

Build Republic returned for Salone del Mobile & SaloneSatellite in 2015.

This year we present 霧/MOU, a collection of lamps that unites modern Asian aesthetics and tech sensibility.

Our collection is inspired by its namesake, mist. Mist shrouds the mountain tops of Hong Kong, visible even from hurried walkways in urban centers. These vistas are a reminder of our connection to the land in the midst of the city, of the opportunity for peace in one of the most densely populated, dynamic places on the globe.

Mou Pendant Lamp

Mou Pendant Lamp with Sonte Film
 

The MOU Pendant Lamp marries an uncluttered, clean Asian aesthetic with modern lines. When transparent, the Pendant Lamp showcases a fresh bamboo form behind the SONTE Film. While the lampshade is opaque, the bamboo casts an intriguing shadow onto the film.

Mou Floor Lamp

 

The MOU Floor Lamp is ideal for any space, but is especially useful for small spaces. Build Republic’s presence in Hong Kong, a city of compact abodes, influences the designs we create. Your home, and the products you bring into it, should serve you. The MOU Floor Lamp provides light without impeding your ability to move comfortably through your space. 

When the SONTE Film is opaque, the light of the lamp is cast through the bamboo form and diffused through the surface of the shade. 

The bamboo form encased within the MOU Floor Lamp is decoratively displayed when the lamp’s SONTE Film shade is transparent.
