Hotaru Marker Light.
In collaboration with London furniture shop twentytwentyone, leading British designers Barber & Osgerby have created a new range of paper lighting drawing on the heritage of Japanese lantern-making. The Hotaru collection represents the perfect union of traditional craft with an enduring aesthetic that is as modern as it is timeless.
Named after the Japanese word for ‘firefly’, the collection is manufactured by Ozeki & Co Ltd, a celebrated Japanese company dedicated to making paper lanterns since 1891. The Hotaru range is constructed using traditional techniques and materials, with translucent Mulberry bark washi paper stretched over a bamboo structure that describes a bold contemporary form.
