A subtly rustic pendant lamp shade, Saiko Design’s Yama, or Mountain in English, highlights the serendipitous beauty of Japanese Mino washi paper’s natural fibres. Made with Kasugami, a type of washi that recycles chiri — paper and fibre dust collected during the purification process of other washi production — each one is unique in its flecked pattern. The warm colour is natural and like a traditional chochin lantern, the dome shape can be folded flat for storage.

Pictured is the Small Fuji, with the Medium being taller and more bell-like in form.

Mino washi is famed for its durability and has been used for shoji sliding doors, uchiwa fans, parasols and chochin lanterns for over a millennia. We love how Saiko Design combines Mino washi and traditional lantern-making to create something so contemporary.

Based in Gifu, Saiko Design brings together the traditional crafts of Mino washi paper and Japanese lanterns to create beautiful minimalist lampshades. They collaborate with local craftspeople who continue to use techniques that date back more than 1,300 years to produce shades featuring subtle textures, delicate patterns and vibrant colors. The washi is made using Nasu mulberry from Ibaraki Prefecture and water from Mino’s Itadori River, frames are constructed using chochin lantern techniques and patterns are inspired by traditional Japanese motifs. Each work is also designed to enhance the beauty of washi with light.
