Mulberry tree light

“Mulberry tree light” is in cooperation with Thijs Ewalts for the DesignMai Youngsters Berlin Hanji Paper. The project was about creating new products with the use of the ancient Korean crafts technique Haji (paper art). The products were exhibited among others during the Seoul Design Festival (2008). “Mulberry tree light” reveals the origin of the material; the bark of the Mulberry tree. The design of the LED light uses the natural capability of the insulation character of the Hanji paper. The thin layers of paper protect the cabels, the resistors and the LED light.The cables, the resistors and the LED lights become the mulberry berries, the branches, the leaves and the veins.
