YAMAGIWA/Homage to Frank Lloyd Wright: Kazuyo Sejima, 2019

Japanese lighting manufacture YAMAGIWA started “Taliasen 2” project in 2017 to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the birth of Frank Lloyd Wright. Kazuyo Sejima participated in 2019 and designed her version of the Taliasen 2 by stacking eight acrylic spheres. It’s named “透明な明かり” (transparent light).  Spares are one of the geometric shapes Sejima uses most frequently. Wright also used them as motifs to design stained glass and rugs.
