Chouchin Lamp series  1

Paris-based designer Ionna Vautrin has created the Chouchin Lamp series for Italian brand Foscarini. According to the designer, “Chouchin is the japanese word for the traditional, symbolic lanterns made out of paper and bamboo used as luminous sources or as lucky charms at the entrance of the house. Reinterpreted in a more contemporary way, these lights borrow the magic and the poetry from this symbolic and ethereal japanese world.

It has an essential and, at the same time, evocative design: the body made out of glass, which is obtained through a single blowing process, is closed by a white collar underneath. Colour played a key role in the choice of materials: glass offers a warm surface on which the varnish produces a full, brilliant colour.”
