Tear Drop

industrial design

Japanese designer Tokujin Yoshioka gave us Tear Drop: a glass and aluminum pendant. Isn't it angelic?

Yoshioka started as an apprentice to Shiro Kuramata and to Issey Miyake, but started his own his own design office in 2000. Since then, no less than 9 of his products made it into the MoMa collection. This includes the ToFU lamp and, yes: Tear Drop.

Tear Drops are produced by Japanese lighting manufacturer Yamagiwa to be used as pendants, but I'd put this on a table: I just want to hold them!
