Asano paper moon lamp 01 - the egg


Handmade in the Gifu prefecture of Japan for 90 years, the Asano collection of Washi table lights was designed by the widely renowned Shigeru Uchida in 1990. These soft-spoken lamps provide a lovely warm glow, with the help of their delicate paper casing. The simplicity of each lamp is emphasized by a wire armature that dilates a continuous spiral of bamboo filament and rice paper.

Lovely in a group or as a standalone piece, these lamps are sure to captivate a variety of rooms and spaces.

For indoor use only.

Notes on production:
The lamps are handcrafted using traditional Washi paper production techniques; crafting each lamp involves wrapping the bamboo around the wooden form/foundation, and then, each paper panel is applied and glued separately until the entire surface form has been papered. It's a labour-intensive process, involving a highly skilled craftsperson to complete.
