Yumi means bow in Japanese. Yumi is both delicate and strong: a clean design and simple shape that blend into a lightweight yet sturdy structure of composite material, wrapped in a carbon fiber coat with a surface brushed to a gloss finish. 170 LEDs are discreetly sunk into the structure of the lamp minimizing the use of space and further enhancing the continuous line of the bow design. Choosing materials that are resistant to high temperatures made it possible to sink the wiring entirely inside the stem during the production process. Yumi spreads a warm downward glow which is ideal for creating an intimate atmosphere.
