Molo’s “heartfelt lantern for Japan”

“Just in time for wandering the streets of Zona Tortona, molo will be taking its felted wool hobo bag and transforming it into a nightlife staple. The portable luminaria (hobo lantern) runs on an energy-efficient LED light that can be plugged into a wall or battery-powered for lighting on-the-go.” – core 77

Says Vancouver-based molo: Further to the information that we sent recently about our new hobo lantern, we are currently making 50 special limited-edition versions of this luminary with the Japanese “sun-disc” hand painted on the lantern and its packaging. The full proceeds of our heartfelt lantern for Japan will be donated to support Architecture for Humanity’s reconstruction efforts in Japan. These special lanterns will be available at molo’s exhibit in Milan at the Temporary Museum for New Design.
