The designer duo from the h220430 Studio, Satoshi Itasaka and Takuto Usami, base their work on designing original lighting and furniture elements. The unusual name of the creative duo stems from the most banal possible circumstances relating back to the start of their partnership, i.e. the date they decided to commence collaboration and open a joint studio. It was on April 30 this year, and the h22 sign at the beginning of the name denotes the name Heisei 22, the current era in Japan.
One of the most interesting products of these two Japanese creative minds is the Mushroom Lamp. In addition to its original design, the Mushroom Lamp can be proclaimed socially aware and engaged considering its visual concept symbolically suggests the designers’ intention, namely, the fight for nuclear weapons elimination and expression of absolute dissent towards that type of aggression as well as the potential dangers it can cause.
