Product description

This series of floor lamps in solid walnut or ash is a tribute to both the historic woodcraft of Kyoto and the early years of Japanese aviation. The lamps’ structure invokes the intricacy of Japanese toy aeroplanes – in particular the Yoshida Hishou, an A-shaped plane fitted with two reverse propellers that successfully crossed Tokyo’s Sumida River in a 1911 model-aircraft contest.

The shade is created using Japan’s Unesco-listed washi paper, by the craftspeople of Kyoto, traditional makers of Japan’s distinctive wagasa (umbrellas made with washi and bamboo). Emitting a gentle, warm-toned light and creating a soft shadow play, the Kyoto Lamp enhances interiors through both its form and effect.
