Description / details

Kurage Table is a paper and wood table lamp with a natural and simple beauty, designed by Nichetto Studio and Nendo for Foscarini. In Japanese kurage means jellyfish and the lamp does in fact resemble a sea animal which dances through the seas cradled by a suffused light, obtained thanks to the use of the finest Japanese washi paper. The diffuser is then simply rested onto a transparent structure designed specifically to ensure it is shadow free. Kurage is made thanks to a very particular workmanship technique that is based on the manufacturing of 3D washi paper. Obtained from mulberry tree fibers, washi paper is both smooth and porous and filters the light creating a relaxing, cosy and emotional atmosphere. Four slender natural colored ash wood legs finish off the lamp together with a white ceramic lamp holder and an electric cable covered in a paper fibre sock.
