Young Swedish designer Jessika Källeskog will be exhibiting her Obi light - inspired, as the name suggests, by the traditional clothing of a geisha - at the Salone in Milan this week.
Her handmade lighting armature explores the warm, glowing attributes of copper, since the light follows the soft movement of the shape, and will be on show at MBK (Galleria Mauro Bolognesi)
Made from one long strip of thin copperplate, the form has been created by wrapping the sheet into an airy sphere and is 'pinned' together with rods. The polished copper is also protected by a clear layer of lacquer and comes in 560 mm and 280 mm versions.
A fairly recent graduate of University of Kalmar, (now Linnea University) Jessika has now set up her own design studio, Contour, in Stockholm and spends her time working between Sweden and Italy.
One to watch if her portfolio is anything to go by.
