HIKARI is a handmade table lamp made in high quality, FSC labelled paper using the ancient Japanese paper folding method Origami, designed and carefully created by Tedzukuri Atelier. Its woody look comes from a new exotic veneer made from banana plant trunks! That’s right! No deforestation! In fact, because the banana plant is a giant grass and not a tree it grows to full size every 9 months and once the bananas had been harvested the mother trunk naturally decomposes. Now a French company recycles the banana plant trunks and gives it a second life transforming it in a beautiful veneer! And Tedzukuri Atelier transforms this incredible new material in beautiful lampshades!
