Delicate materials and hand craftsmanship give the iconic Asian lantern a contemporary twist with Formakami JH18 Ivory Table Lamp by Jaime hayon made for the AND TRADITION brand. The result is ambient light in a lamp where the design itself feels light.
It is a hybrid concept that fuses different aspects of cultures into a new design language. Airy, bulbous forms made of white rice paper ivory with black lacquered ash accents look Asian yet a bit Scandinavian. Place the lamps in a modern setting and the cultural references disappear-replaced by a sense of magic. Off, there is a sense of serenity. On, there is intimacy.
