Monkey Around by Just Not Normal
by sabine7 / August 18, 2009

What do monkeys, pick-axes, chanterelle mushrooms and cherry blossoms have in common? They are all the basis for some eye-opening lighting. Too often we tend to think of lighting as purely functional, forgetting that it can take a wide variety of forms. John Niero's Monkey Around chandelier riffs on the childhood barrel monkeys that some of us may have enjoyed; Matthias Ries is inspired by Eiger North and woodland fungus; and Shige Hasegawa uses the traditional cherry blossom motif in up-to-date lighting.
