The Kanamota table lamp is named after Mount Saint Helena which is Kanamota in Native American. Kanamota also means human mountain. Composed of uplifted 2.4 million year old volcanic rocks, it is one of the few mountains in the SF Bay Area to receive any snowfall during the winter. The table light is glazed in a speckled white for that reason. Each design takes inspiration from the location's specific terrain while the light bulb represents the position of the sun.

Virginia Sin, the woman behind SIN, is a Brooklyn-based multi-disciplinary designer. In 2006, she left LA for Brooklyn, to make a name for herself. With her collections of overalls, small rocks and medium-sized succulents in tow, she set up a studio in Greenpoint and developed her first line: The Gluttony Collection. Working to continually broaden her design horizons, Virginia has focused her recent attention on redefining ceramic coils, translating her graphic designs into weave structures and challenging the limitations of clay in the lighting industry, in hopes to bring some extra warmth into the world.
