Formakami pendant light is a modern take on classic Asian paper lanterns. Our aim was to create a light pendant that illuminates people’s lives both literally and symbolically.
The white color of the shade emphasizes the lightness of rice paper and the open bottom maximizes the amount of light. Black stained oak rings give Formakami’s handmade shade a pleasant rhythm. known for his playful designs, has combined round shapes in different sizes, and the end result is a collection of three unique pendant lights.
Dating back centuries, paper lanterns have featured in Asia amongst the privileged and the poor, where different colors, shapes, and sizes connote different meanings. Here Hayon has dispensed with cultural formalities to create a series of lanterns all in white. Handcrafted with rice paper merging various sizes and shapes together.
The Paper Lantern series is comprised of three different versions in ivory white rice paper with black stained oak accents in sizes from 46 cm in diameter to 70 cm. Each weighing only 1 kilo, they hang delicately in any indoor setting. Living proof that when East and West meet, the past becomes the present in a poetic expression of both.
