monomo is currently in Italy for Milano Salone 2016, the most important annual event for design professionals and enthusiasts! Representing PET Lamp JAPAN as a production agent, monomo is presenting PET Lamp’s successful first season and connecting with talented artisans from around the globe. If you have a project that incorporates Japanese craftsmanship, monomo can help as a production agent. Milano Salone runs from April 12 to 17th in Milan, Italy. Stop by and say "Hi!" to Sachi!

The PET Lamp JAPAN project works to naturally incorporate salvaged plastic from PET plastic bottles into Kyoto’s traditional woven bamboo basketry. We tried to show off the colorless, transparent plastic common in Japanese bottles, while maintaining the right balance with the natural bamboo to preserve the delicate characteristics of Kyoto’s fine crafts.
