Mayuhana collection from Yamagiwa

Mayuhana by Toyo Ito for Yamagiwa

Dezeen Showroom: Pritzker Architecture Prize-winning architect Toyo Ito has designed Mayuhana, a collection of cocoon-like fibreglass lamps for Japanese lighting brand Yamagiwa.

The Mayuhana range by Japanese architect Ito for Yamagiwa takes the form of a spun thread woven into delicate shapes.

The design evokes traditional Japanese paper lanterns

Each one is handmade by Japanese craftworkers reeling fibreglass string around a mold into two or three layers to provide a soft, warm glow reminiscent of traditional paper lanterns.

"The soft light that evokes traditional paper lanterns knowns as Bonbori brings an airy elegance to modern interior living areas," said the brand.

"It provides a warm glow above a dining table and dynamic installation in high ceiling rooms," it added.

The collection includes pendant lamps, floor lamps and table lamps available in white or black colour options.

Its name is a portmanteau of "mayu", the Japanese word for cocoon, and "hana", the word for flower.
