Handmade in the Gifu prefecture of Japan for 90 years, this collection of rice paper table lights speaks softly with their halcyon shape and warm diffusion. The simplicity of their structure is characterized by a wire armature that dilates a continuous spiral bamboo filament and rice paper. Asano lantern lamps are lovely in a group. Flat packed and gift boxed, the experience of taking an Asano light out of its box is like unfolding a precious silk.
