Tuplet by Taeg Nishimoto is a floor lamp that uses a mesh fabric called Buckram. Buckram is impregnated with resin and is usually used to make the inner structure of hats. It is molded into shape by wetting and when it’s dry, it retains a self-supporting strength while remaining the translucent quality of mesh. The lamp is composed with multipliable hexagonal units of 6 inches with 6 inches deep, and was conceived as a geometric play of black and white stacked units, creating different configurations. Each unit is made with six sheets of Buckram (7 ½” x 11”, 19cm x 28cm) that were connected two at a time. The way the folding of the wet fabric against the hexagonal mold was done in a completely spontaneous manner to give each folding and the connected unit an individual appearance, as well as adding to the playfulness of the units. When the mesh fabric is overlapped, it creates the moiré effect that emphasizes the hollow inner volume of hexagons.

There are two basic configurations; one is a tower with a single light source, and the other has two lighting source at the bottom with units spanning between them. The units can be stacked up to 5 units that make the tower 5’-2” (1.57m) high.
The light bulb is contained in the box at the bottom, and the light is projected upward. When it’s lit, each unit receives the light and makes the translucency of the mesh fabric more apparent. The light also projects out from the center hole of each unit and when it is placed against the wall, it creates dynamic shadow pattern on the adjacent wall. Via Taeg Nishimoto
