&Tradition Formakami Table Lamp JH18
In typical Jaime Hayon style, these Paper Lanterns challenge convention, notes &tradition Brand Manager Martin Kornbek Hansen. Seen in an ultra light pendant lamp of rice paper, echoing ancient lanterns from Asia – reinvented in a modern aesthetic.
Dating back centuries, paper lanterns have featured in Asia amongst the privileged and the poor, where different colours, shapes and sizes connote different meanings. Here Hayon has dispensed with cultural formalities to create a series of lanterns all in white. Hand crafted with rice paper merging various sizes and shapes together.
Lamps play such an important role in people’s lives, explains Hayon. For some cultures, they chase away the darkness by bringing hope. I’ve tried to keep this emotional angle about light – in a lamp that also appears light. By making the bottom part of the lamp open, the idea is to bring even more illumination to people everywhere in the world.
Delicate materials and hand craftsmanship give the iconic Asian lantern a contemporary twist with the &Tradition Formakami Table Lamp JH18 by Jaime Hayon. The result is an ambient light in a lamp where the design itself appears light.
It’s a hybrid concept fusing different aspects of cultures into a new design idiom. Airy, bulbous shapes crafted in ivory white rice paper with black lacquered ash accents look Asian and yet somewhat Scandinavian. Place the lamps in a modern milieu and cultural references disappear – replaced by a sense of magic. Switched off, there’s a sense of serenity. Switched on, there’s intimacy.
