Molo design, our friends from Vancouver, Canada, have delighted us with this unique take on how we use light. This design blends the urban style of hobo culture with something a little bright.

Hobo Lantern is a portable luminary inspired by the urban nightlife of Zona Tortona during Design Week. Hobo comes to life with an energy-efficient LED light source glowing through its delicate pattern of translucent fibres. Hobo Lantern will be available on on April 12, 2011 – the first day of Design Week in Milan!  (From Designer website)
