Foscarini Kurage LED Table Lamp
Designers: Nichetto + Nendo
A new lightweight, poetic, handcrafted project has emerged from the joint efforts of Italian designer Luca Nichetto and the multidisciplinary working group Nendo founded by Japanese architect Oki Sato - the new Kurage table lamp.
In Japanese kurage means jellyfish and the lamp does in fact resemble a sea animal which dances through the seas cradled by a suffused light, obtained thanks to the use of the finest Japanese washi paper. The diffuser is then simply rested onto a transparent structure designed specifically to ensure it is shadow free.
Kurage is made thanks to a very particular workmanship technique developed by AOYA, the only manufacturer of 3D washi paper, which is hand-made in the city of Tottori in Japan. Obtained from mulberry tree fibres, washi light creating a relaxing, cosy and emotional atmosphere capable of seducing both heart and intellect. Four slender natural coloured ashwood legs finish off the lamp together with a white ceramic lamp holder and an electric cable covered in a paper fibre sock.
