UMBEL LIGHTING COLLECTION

Made for Chudeng ︎︎︎
Designed with Sean Yeoh ︎︎︎
In botany, an umbel is an inflorescence that consists of a number of short flower stalks which stem from a common point, somewhat like umbrella ribs. From the Latin "umbella", meaning ‘parasol, sunshade’, this lamp seems to bloom into cluster of flowers that contain light within, like opening an umbrella to unexpectedly protect us from shade.
