Formakami JH5


Handmade rice paper hanging lamp. An ancient icon in a contemporary context: Jaime Hayon’s Formakami lamp is truly exceptional.



East meets West in Jaime Hayon’s playful touch of a traditional Asian lantern in contemporary expression. For centuries, paper lanterns have appeared in Asia among 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 all-white lamps. Handmade with rice paper fusing various sizes and shapes. The series consists of three different versions of lantern and a table lamp in ivory white rice paper with details in black-stained oak.
