The Buna Table Lamp is inspired by the fungus species Buna Shimeji.
The Mexican design studio Bandido Studio has given the mushroom shape a lot of thought, as fungi are present in diverse ecosystems around Mexico.
Apart from their different shapes, their primary function is to spread fungi spores – just like a lamp shedding light. After a lot of observations and experiments to find the perfect shape, the final design imitates the soft and round proportions of the Buna Shimeji.
