PRE-ORDER / Andon Vertical Cross Outdoor Lamp

€935,00 EUR

Inspired by the traditional lanterns used in Japan, the design team has built a brand new structure for this new series of lamps using original material. Combining the classic Japanese cultural lanterns styles with an exceptional modern design.

The cedar wood is used to form the shape of the frame. Utilising the techniques of Japanese craftsmanship, the entire structure is made only with wooden frames without the use of any nails. The base that supports the main body is made of solid wood. Handmade Mino Japanese paper is used to build the light-transmitting shade layer for the lamp.

Nowadays, LED light bulbs have become the mainstream light source, and by using an incandescent light bulb, they have made it possible to reproduce colours with taste. By dimming the brightness of the lamp, you can enjoy the warm colours like dusk and flames.

  • Cover layer: by mino transparent Japanese paper
  • Body/base structure: by unpainted Japanese cedar solid wood

Japan-Best is first and foremost a story about Japanese craftsmen with the influence of contemporary design. We are inspired by the timeless beauty of traditional Japanese craftsmanship, and their ability to adapt to our modern lifestyle. The more brands we meet, the more passionate we become about the stories behind each product; the skills of the craftsmen, or the long tradition of an object left unchanged for generations yet somehow remaining contemporary.

Japan-Best is a collection of Japanese brands, which we have selected for the originality of their design, the quality of their production, the fact that their production is “Made in Japan”, and the long history that they maintain, quite often for several generations.

Our selection of Japanese food is also based on craftsmanship in agriculture. We choose brands based on how they are made and we love brands that continue to use traditional natural techniques to grow food and prepare it. Good packaging and design is always and added joy to find!
