“Serotonin-Sertraline” floor lamp is inspired by the artistic form of classical Chinese ceremonial objects such as the Buddhist parasol. It is covered in fine silk, hand-embroidered with the molecular geometry of Serotonin (the hormone that makes us feel happiness), Sertraline (a medicine that reduces depression), and text of ten questions that a therapist would ask.
As part of Duyi Han’s “Ordinance of the Subconscious Treatment” collection, this piece is considered a device that records human cultural history. It updates the decorative content of classical Chinese furniture and reflects a contemporary belief in the modern scientific side of mental health.
The embroidery is done by highly experienced craftspeople in Suzhou, China. The lamp is made by experienced professionals at Duyi Han’s collaborative workshop in Shanghai.
