Paper lamps are often seen in Asian cultures, as well as some western cultures, as ornamental symbols of hope and prosperity, used both in the household and during celebrations. “Formakami” follows &Traditions’ core principles, where tradition and history meet modern design lines and techniques, blended with the Spanish designer’s playful design elements and youthful character.
The Ivory White Lamps are handmade from rice paper, and are available in three sizes. Their form gives a subtle and warm light, providing any interior with a cosy and familiar feeling. The black rings, made from stained park, accentuate the lamp shade’s shape and maximises the lighting effect.
“Light has the ability to dispel darkness and bring hope. With the paper lanterns, I kept the colour white to make the appearance of the lamps themselves light. I also wanted to have even more light exude from them. More illumination. So I cut the bottom shape in half, leaving it open. With a secret desire to illuminate people’s lives – literally and symbolically.”
