Cho Light is an exercise in literal and visual lightness only attainable using cutting-edge manufacturing techniques. A globe of crumpled, off-white, traditional Japanese Washi paper creates a diffused glow from an LED bulb, which is adjustable via a dimmer. This shade balances on a six-millimetre diameter carbon-fibre rod, which extends up from a weighted base to create the design’s almost impossibly light appearance. The tall, strong carbon-fibre rod produces a dancer-like movement when the light is touched, injecting a playfulness into the deceptive simplicity of Cho Light
