During a recent trip to DC, I discovered this amazing, silk cocoon pendant lamp hanging in a restaurant (more on restaurant later) in the buzzy heart of developing "U" Street. From the Thai design firm Ango, it's made entirely of empty(?) cocoons woven together with wire threading and resembles a dense cluster of supernovas in The Milky Way. It is available as a pendant, floor, or wall model by emailing a request through the online showroom Chairs.ws.
