Asano Paper Lamp - Moon Egg
A symbol of delicate beauty, illustrated using traditional Japanese lantern-making techniques. Fill your room with a contemplative atmosphere through the Paper Moon Egg Table Lamp from Asano. While rooted in tradition, the piece exudes a timelessness that a range of home styles can appreciate. For over 90 years, artisans in Japan’s Gifu Region have been crafting these lanterns by hand. The artisans start the piece with an egg-shaped armature, then intricately wind it with bamboo ribbing to give it its characteristic pattern. Also used for origami, washi paper wraps the piece as a texture-rich shade for pleasant light diffusion. Whether on the floor or the table, the piece creates a warm, soothing ambiance.
Offering a range of lanterns and table lamps rooted in Japanese design traditions, Asano puts a modern spin on classic lighting designs that are beloved by designers and design enthusiasts. Asano designs support energy-efficient LED lamping and are available in modern shapes like half orbs, spheres, and cones. These handmade, paper table lamps stand out thanks to ribbed bamboo and rice-paper shades supported by steel wire bases that lend a classic yet ultramodern look.
