A frame (=gaku) used together with lamps and other objects, which gives a feeling almost as if it were something between accessories and furniture.
An adjustable-height pending lamp hangs down inside of one frame, while a second design features non-contact charging functionality to power a matching spot or luminescent lamp. Usually, the lamp is simply left on the charging dock, and then moved around freely when lighting is needed elsewhere. The directional lamp features a magnet that allows it to be placed at an angle, making it easy to adjust the direction of spot to be lighted.
Lamp settings include a mode during which they are turned on when sitting on the charging dock and turned off when moved away so that the location of the lighting itself serves as a power switch. Bowls, vases, a tray, a mirror, bookends, and other accessories are held in place by magnets, keeping them held firmly in place at the centre of the frame without the need for a large area of contact. An assortment of accessory-like lighting and lighting-like accessories makes combining the two simple, as if one were casually rearranging the interior of a miniature room. gaku_sketchgaku01_akihiro_yoshida gaku02_akihiro_yoshida gaku03_akihiro_yoshida gaku04_akihiro_yoshida gaku05_akihiro_yoshida gaku06_akihiro_yoshida gaku07_akihiro_yoshida gaku08_akihiro_yoshida gaku09_akihiro_yoshidagaku10_akihiro_yoshidagaku11_akihiro_yoshida gaku12_akihiro_yoshida gaku13_akihiro_yoshida gaku14_akihiro_yoshida gaku15_akihiro_yoshida gaku16_akihiro_yoshida gaku17_akihiro_yoshida gaku18_akihiro_yoshida gaku19_akihiro_yoshida gaku20_akihiro_yoshida gaku21_akihiro_yoshida gaku22_akihiro_yoshida gaku23_akihiro_yoshidagaku24_akihiro_yoshida
