A lamp that looks like a tent with a lamp inside it

Kenji Ito and Takahiro Umino of design unit MUTE have created this lamp that attempts to emulate the warmth emitted by a camping tent.
I’ve recently been in love with small design with big possibility. Such as this glass globe.

In the case of “tent,”  I love how one could easily imagine an entire world within. It plays off ones sense of physical and imaginary warmth. It reminds me of something out of Moomin, the Swedish characters. I used to watch the animated series as a child in Japan (the Japanese love Moomin).
