Kyouei Design reveals their first work to come out of 2011, the “Reconstruction Chandelier.” This Chandelier is made from 12 industrial clip lamps which were welded together, then gilded for finishing. As you will see in one of the pictures below, the original clip lamps used to create the chandelier was one of the creations we saw in 2010.

Kyouei Design is a Japanese design company in Shizuoka City, Japan lead by product designer / sound producer Kouichi Okamoto. They manufacture the products they design including interior, lighting, and various other cleverly designed works.
Kouichi Okamoto was born in 1970 in Shizuoka City, Japan. Under the name “bekkou” Okamoto released the sound source work “Hi Light” from Dutch techno label X-trax in 1997 and other Dutch and British labels since. He began product design work in 2004 and established Kyouei Design company in 2006.
Here are some of my favorite items from Kyouei Design’s works made prior to the reconstruction chandelier. Most are still available for purchase on their website.
Top: “Liquid Bookmark” is made one by one with rubber and when used looks like it is melting.
Bottom: “Endless Rain Record” is a real phonograph record which plays rain sounds and the sound of rain drops forever.
This one is a napkin with a picture of cool art frame on it. The ones who eat more sloppily are likely to finish off dinner with the more creative art piece in the end.
Balloon Lamp. Simple idea. Great LED mood light. Use it continuously over 100 hours with 2 lithium-coin batteries. (included)
Left: “Topography Plate” Use it as a soup bowl, make it a lake. Use it as a salad dish, becomes a forest. Enjoy the landscape of your food!
Right: This ceramic umbrella pot has a plant pot at the bottom. It utilizes rain water from your umbrella to feed the plant in the pot.
