                                With parents that teach and play Japanese Taiko drums, it&#8217;s only natural that Miles Endo, of <a href="http://www.studioendo.com/" >STUDIO ENDO</a>, used them for inspiration when he became a designer. The launch of his first collection, called <a href="http://www.studioendo.com/collections/hira-lighting-series" >HIRA</a>, sees a series of lighting and a media cabinet, both of which feature textured surfaces that reference the carved interiors of the drums that inspired them.

The copper interior’s matte surface reflects a ring of LEDs that are projected to create a radiant light.

The copper doors are paired with ebonized oak wood and the legs are made of hot rolled steel. Studio_Endo_HIRA_Lighting_11 Studio_Endo_HIRA_Lighting_12 Studio_Endo_HIRA_Lighting_13
