The Kaipo TOO is hand blown in the Italian region Venetia. Home of traditional glassmaking. The transparency of the Kaipo TOO creates an airy stratification.
The feminine contours of the archetypical base add grace and elegance. The Kaipo TOO stands through the test of time. Its classical shape is well suited for a Frivolous French parlour. However, due to the use of one material, the Kaipo TOO also finds its place in a modern and minimal loft. Truly a timeless lighting object.
