Chouchin is a Japanese word meaning those traditional symbolic paper and bamboo lanterns typically used as light and bright signs outside restaurants and bars, or as lucky charms outside homes. Simple and stylish, Chouchin teams unique craft-based expertise with a modern and strikingly simple style. The Chouchin family comprises 3 models with a coloured matt glass body. Beside the first version a new one is born: Chouchin reverse. The shapes are the same but the colours have been inverted; the diffuser is now white while the collar stays the same colour as the previous shape. It is not just about a new colour, but rather a new light, a new use even. Indeed, Chouchin reverse, thanks to the pale blown glass diffuser, not only directs light downwards – like the original Chouchin - but it also diffuses a brilliant, flowing and emotional light into its surroundings.
