Chochin Lamp by h220430

Although Japan boasts of many outstanding traditional craftworks, the majority of these craftworks are endangered. One of them is the paper lantern called “Chouchin”. An effective means to help these lanterns to survive into the future is by utilize them. Here, we designed lighting equipment for the Gifu Chouchins famously known to have a history of about 500 years ago.

For many years an aesthetic called “Innei Raisan” (In Praise of Shadows) had existed in Japan. Nevertheless, we often see light spreading across uniformly at every corner to overcome darkness. In such an environment, it is difficult for Japanese to maintain a keen sensitivity to beauty, which has continuously been passed down from generations to generations.

Strangely enough, the power saving deployed after 3.11 (the Great East Japan Earthquake) reminded the Japanese people of the spirit of “Innei Raisan” (In Praise of Shadows). We now know that the humble and gentle charm of light we rediscovered when saving power is enough for us. In that regard, we designed Chouchin Lamp as we felt it was necessary for light to reflect Japan in such a situation.

In Japan, the idea that worldly things do not last long is now to taking roots. Japan has come to see beauty out of the fragility of temporary things. We incorporated this specific idea into our design and hope that Chouchin Lamp will introduce the beauty of tradition into your living space and bring back the light reflects Japan.

We’re glad we didn’t have to put this list together: Argentinian architect Andrea Stinga and creative director Federico Gonzalez compiled a list called The ABC of Architects, “an alphabetical list of the most important architects with their best known building.” They then distilled those buildings into simplified graphics and animated it into a video:

The video was done for fun and isn’t meant to be a completely comprehensive list. “A lot of [architects] have been left out with grief because we only need one for each letter,” write Stinga and Gonzalez, “and we [made] an effort to [include a multitude of] nationalities.”
