There were a number of mannequins carelessly chucked in a garden of some mannequin maker company. They ended their original function as mannequins. So there was no need to use them any more.
The arm parts of those mannequins reminded me a Buddhism god of war, ‘Ashura’. ‘Ashura’ has six arms and three interchangeable faces. He inspired me to design two new pieces of lighting furniture, recycling them.
This ancient god met a modern lighting project and eco concept.
Now they have turned to be completely defferent and got reborn with a lighting function.
