Since the sea trade connections were established with Asia centuries ago, Western artists and furniture makers were greatly influenced by orientalism in many ways. Danish furniture designer Rasmus Fenhann was touched by the exotic energies of the Far East, too. With his latest creations he revitalizes his Hikari lights from 2005. Hikari II Edition represents a brand-new interpretation of the original series. These nice Polyhedra lights use Oregon Pine and Japanese paper. Compared to the previous models the current ones have been improved in a couple of other ways as well. For instance lightbulbs can be easily mounted in the lamps now and wood became thinner also. All the showcased lights are about 270 mm and each of them has its own unique shape. If you love the 2012 Hikari II edition and want to bring the harmonic mélange of Danish and Japanese design to your living room then you can drop by the Galerie Maria Wettergren in Paris in order to purchase your favorite piece.
Rasmus Fenhann graduated from the at Danmarks Designskole in 2003. He has a passion for the unique identity of the materials. He designs furniture pieces and objects that are distinctive in every way or made in limited editions. The designer also believes in innovative thinking and deeply respects the tradition and knowledge of the rich Danish furniture design history.
