Dezeen Showroom: Norm Architects has designed a collection of lighting for Danish brand Menu that offers a "Nordic take on the traditional Japanese rice paper lantern".

Called Hashira, the range includes a floor, table and pendant lamp, each enveloped by a translucent rice paper shade that creates a soft, diffused light.

According to Menu, Hashira's simple, geometric shapes represent "a modern, Nordic take on the traditional Japanese rice paper lantern".

"Spreading ambient light in a room, the Hashira collection makes for purposeful lighting above a dining table, in a reception area or on a table in a hotel bedroom, bringing a sense of understated luxury and purpose to interior spaces," added Norm Architects.

The collection includes a 49.5-centimetre-tall cylindrical table lamp, a larger 83-centimetre-tall floor lamp and a pendant that consists of a trio of lanterns suspended from a black cord.
