0 PAMPSHADE: REAL BREAD LAMPS By Yukiko Morita

Loafs of bread and buns always signify warmth and comfort so creating a warm light from breads, we though, was an ingenious idea! Enter the Pampshade.

Back in 2006, Yukiko Morita, a teenager at the time, realized her love for bread and yeast when she got a part-time job working at a small bakery in Kyoto.

“I love bread. Bread is cute,” she says. “I want to display it in my room and stare at it.”  But of course, you can only keep bread in your room for so long before it starts to 'decay'. So, Morita set to work on creating a bread prototype that could double as an interior design.






Now, at Tokyo Design Week, her labors of love were on display in a series of lamps made from loaves of bread and then covered in a layer of resin. The ingredients for her creations, says Morita, are “Bread flour, salt, yeast, LED, batteries,” and some other secret ingredients she won’t share.
