This minimalist lighting design from Tokyo based designers Naoki Ono and Yuki Yamamoto from studio YOY shows a bit of whimsy while keeping things clean and unobtrusive. The fixture illuminates through a space that looks as though the wall has been peeled back at the corner. Fitting flat to the wall surface the lamp blends into its surroundings and creates an optical illusion at night. In a dark room the fixture could almost be treated as an architectural detail.
Ono and Yamamoto used OLED as the light source in order to get the fixture as thin as possible and still produce enough light to be a solid source of illumination. The fixture is also designed so that the cord travels down the corner channel of the wall joint. That it won’t stand out and the fixture disappears into the plane of the wall surfaces.
