Hiroshima is an exercise in perspective.

From one viewpoint, the domed shade is solidly fixed to the metal base by a massive neck. From another, it fragilely balances on a wire. Depending on your position, the mushroom- shaped lamp takes on a different signification. Meanings, interpretations and reactions vary.

Hiroshima is full of affecting possibilities. “Everything can be something else”.

What seem like contrasting situations exist concurrently. What seems unbalanced is actually in equal proportion. Both captivating and disturbing, the lamp is a calm and silent presence, “a retained intensity”.

Twenty stainless steel Hiroshima lamps were produced in limited edition in 2003. A wood, copper and brass edition were developed in 2011. Each lamp is made by hand.
