The lanterns are produced using these traditional methods whilst creating bold contemporary forms. Double bubble fuses twin spheres to evoke a strong sculptural and organic shape whilst Buoy embraces the spirit of a maritime marker.  

Barber & Osgerby has collaborated with twentytwentyone to produce this range of lighting which has captured the essence of a traditional far eastern lantern with designs that are both modern and timeless.
