Satoshi Itasaka is Japanese. He is also, and for our greatest luck, a very talented and awarded designer, who we met around a japanese tea ceremony in Ginza, Tokyo.
He told us about his Mushroom Lamp, an amazing piece of design which found its place within the walls of the MoMA in San Francisco, where it is currently exhibited.
It is a 10 piece limited edition only.
We, at the Hobo Society, have the immense pride of having the exclusivity over the sale of the last 7 remaining pieces to be produced.
Itasakasan created this amazing piece to remind people of the unbelievable total of 23,000 nuclear weapons in circulation worldwide, and capable of annihilating the whole planet several times over.
Under these hopeless circumstances, what we can do to aim for a nuclear-free world is to have concern about this issue, to deepen our understanding, to have discussions and to continue to advocate the elimination of nuclear weapons.
"h220430" was established on April 30th, Heisei 22 (Heisei is the current era name in japan).
Their design activities focus on lighting and furniture, etc.
They want to design not just primary shape of the object but secondary communication deriving from the messages in the object. They hope their works will produce communication and provide an opportunity for people to rethink and act against many difficult problems such as deterioration of global environment and continuous conflicts all over the world.
