RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
In order to realize the project Shining Glass, it was necessary to invent the mechanism which satisfies the function of holding a drinking glass without any modification such as drilling and providing power feeder cable inconspicuously. And the base of the lamp is necessary to realize the unique semi-circular arm structure to hold faceted drinking glass.

CHALLENGE:
It took a long time to invent the mechanism of easily holding and locking a drinking glass by making some prototypes. The problem was solved by a simple screw locking mechanism, although it was difficult to lock the drinking glass so as not to stress the power feeder cable. And the lamp base is created by glassblowing with the cooperation of staffs (Mr. Bitou, Mr. Toda and Ms. Watanabe) of the Tokushima Glass Studio.
