Japan and the lights
Nature has always had a prominent place in the daily life of Japanese people. From the choice of materials, to the choice of the interior layout, all that was needed was a play of light to create the incomparable atmosphere found in traditional houses. At nightfall, the show goes on outside. Between the neon lights of Tokyo and the natural wooden lamps of the small shops of Kyoto, it is a real journey to the land of lights.
Our Japanese wooden lamps will allow you to recreate this Zen atmosphere in the room of your choice.
Our craftsman masters a traditional technique called Kumiko from Okawa. It allows him to assemble the whole of the Japanese floor lamp without nail or screw. We could relate that to a 3D puzzle. The small strips of wood used fit closely together to form the pattern (Hishi). The mastery of this technique requires great dexterity and unfailing patience. The number of patterns and types of wood used offer a great variety of combinations.
