The Kaipo TOO is the successor of the first Kaipo design, dating back to 2001. The lighting object still sports the classic shape of the archetypical lamp base. The main difference lies in the choice of materials. The first Kaipo was a statement of contrast, made of glass and steel. The Kaipo TOO radiates unity as it is made solely out of hand-blown glass.
