Drop Paper Lamp

Time & Style


K5 is a hotel whose interior design was conceived and designed by Claesson Koivisto Rune. This unique facility includes hotel accommodation, a restaurant, a wine bar, and a coffee shop, all housed in a newly renovated historic building in Tokyo, Japan. They designed a collection of lightings, exclusively for K5.

Drop paper lamp is made with the techniques of Suifu lantern, known for the production of durable and sturdy paper lanterns. For the lantern’s shade, we chose Echizen washi paper, a traditional paper with a history of about 1,500 years and characterized by its warm color and durability due to the long and thick Japanese mulberry fiber used as the raw material. It is generally used in large sheets that can be applied seamlessly to large fittings such as fusuma (sliding doors) and byobu (folding screens).
