Kyouei’s Light and Sound Machines

It’s been over two years since we featured Japanese design firm Kyouei, and their latest creations are not to be missed.  These iron sculptures actually are lamps, and these tiny music players use dishes, pendulums and motors to make sounds.  Be sure to check out their website for a bunch of other fantastical designed objects.  Kyouei was founded by Kouichi Okamoto in 2006.
