Entry Description

Compact lighting fixture using recycled corks from wine bottles consumed at restaurants in Tokyo that have been collected and reused.
The compact lighting fixture uses recycled corks from wine bottles consumed at restaurants in Tokyo. Indirect light illuminated by the cork gives off a gentle and warm glow.
It is rechargeable and portable. This lighting fixture allows you to enjoy gentle light at any time and any place.
The name of the work, LEad, is a combination of the word "guide" and LED, the light source, in the hope that it will be a light that leads to hope in any situation.
