At a quick glance, these synthetic mushrooms could pass off as the real thing. But they’re actually a clever deception of discarded wood, LED lights and perfectly handcrafted glass courtesy of Japanese artist Yukio Takano. You’ll be in awe at the beauty and intricacy of one of these masterpieces because there’s something both mechanical and organic about it. It can also turn your interior into a realm of magic and it looks a lot better than some cheesy conventional lamp. The only problem, besides shipping one of these to you, is figuring out which one to choose, since they’re all so darn awesome!It’s bioluminescent perfection that will make you feel so enchanted.
They’re also embedded with LED lights to give these mushroom lamps their ethereal glow.
The lamps also incorporate a natural element to them thanks to the reclaimed driftwood the mushrooms sit atop of.
Takano currently produces up to 15 lamps every two months.
These masterpieces would be too fragile to survive the trip so Takano only ships locally.
He also has to skillfully hide the LED lights and the wiring inside the mushroom made of dyed resin clay and inside the driftwood base.
Takano skillfully drew inspiration from Mother Nature and added a mythical, almost ethereal element to his design.
How else do you explain how a seemingly odd shape like that of a mushroom can become something so appealing?
It’s energy-efficient LED lights can be turned on and off by a plastic switch on the side which ups the retro feel of this cool lamp.
And if you’re allergic to real mushrooms, you’ll finally get to enjoy this simulated wonder without ever worrying about an Epipen.
