The Kimono Collection is a range of lighting and accessories inspired by the Japanese aesthetic. At the heart of this is the beautiful Iki lamp created in partnership with the renowned ceramicist – Ikuko Iwamoto.
Based in London, Ikuko is inspired by the intricate and fragile forms found in the natural world. Typically her work in porcelain involves using a slip-casting technique to create unique, organic pieces which are both intricate and natural.
The name "Iki" comes from the Japanese aesthetic concept of a subdued display of taste or more roughly ‘chic’ or stylish. It comes in white porcelain with a matte glaze either plain or with a textured finish which resembles a sea urchin.
To complement the Iki Lamp we have designed a range of lampshades made using vintage kimono silks in a range of vibrant colours. This is a limited Edition and generally the lamps and the shades are made to order.
