TURN CRAFT, rechargeable portable lamp designed by Nao Tamura – photo credit Hiroshi Iwasaki

TURN CRAFT is a reinterpretation of Nao Tamura's TURN project, launched in 2019, that reveals original material and color effects. A portion of the stem is wrapped in hand-stitched, fine Tuscan Liscio leather, adding a touch of character.

The glossy black version, TURN CRAFT Stainless Black / Nero, is obtained through a steel dyeing process that Ambientec uses for the first time, giving the color fullness. A portion of the stem is wrapped in hand-stitched, fine black Tuscan Liscio leather, adding a touch of character. The brass version, TURN CRAFT Brass / Cotto, has a nostalgic allure that reinterprets the lamp's contemporary lines. The special process treated with very gentle oil finishing, gives the finish varying shades over time, making the lamp a distinctive object with exquisite and unsual aesthetics. The Tuscan Liscio leather coating on a portion of the stem is hand-sewed and complements the natural tones of the lamp perfectly.
