The Kyoto Floor Lamp is a stylish and functional light designed by OeO for Stellar Works. The Kyoto is a tribute to both the historic woodcraft of Kyoto and the early years of Japanese aviation. The lamps’ structure evokes the intricacy of Japanese toy aeroplanes – in particular the Yoshida Hishou: an A-shaped plane fitted with two reverse propellers that successfully crossed Tokyo’s Sumida River in a 1911 model-aircraft contest. The structure and base of the Kyoto Light are made in ash; whilst its shade is created by using Japan’s Unesco-listed washi paper, by the craftspeople of Kyoto - the traditional makers of Japan’s distinctive Wagasa (umbrellas made with washi and bamboo). The Kyoto Lamp gives a gentle, warm-toned light and creates a soft game of shadows, enhancing interior spaces through both its shape and its lighting effect.
The Kyoto Floor Lamp is appropriate for both domestic and commercial uses, especially in lounges, reception areas, hotels and offices.
Informed by a strong aesthetic and a globetrotting perspective, OeO is a studio with a holistic approach to brand creation through design.
