These beautiful Yhi pendant lamps by Brian Steendyk benefit from a brilliant flat-pack design that saves on shipping costs while cutting down on carbon emissions. One of our favorite designs from the Matilda Exhibition at the 2010 London Design Festival, the lamps capture the spirit of aboriginal culture with their sculpted forms made from 100% recyclable plantation-harvested plywood.

Named after the aboriginal sun goddess, these Yhi lamps emphasize the importance of electrical energy in lighting up our lives.
