Kinoko by Timothy Robertson


Fascinated by the relationship between nature and architecture, Timothy Robertson develops unique designs deriving from a methodical inquiry into the built environment, flora, and culture. With a firm belief in honesty and harmony, Timothy Robertson’s work celebrates materials and manufacturing, both traditional and digital, exploring material tactility and innovative details that welcomes an intriguing investigation.

Kinoko, meaning mushroom is a collection of lamps inspired by the playful characters of fungi. The series draws on the aesthetic of simplicity; by creating an everyday object that draws on design values existing in the natural world.

Kinoko features a marble shade with a brass diffuser that dissipates the light, allowing a warming yet gentle glow through the material above and below, reinforcing its purpose of creating an inviting atmosphere.
