tofu lamp

ALTHOUGH light travels most efficiently in a vacuum, it is perhaps best appreciated when traversing a medium. Tokujin Yoshioka’s Tofu lamp is just such a medium, although not soy-based as the name implies but acrylic. Tofu is simplicity at its best: an aluminum lightsource is all that mars its otherwise simple and clean design, made with a delicate cutting process that would make its gastronomic brethren proud.
