BRIGHTUS Co., Ltd. (Kanagawa)

Produced with an artisan with a vast knowledge of wood and masterful techniques living in Ogawa in Saitama Prefecture known for washi paper and “tategu” (wooden fittings), this wooden LED lantern shade made using “kumiko,” a traditional Japanese woodworking technique, and washi paper transforms any room into a retro-modern space. Kumiko is a delicate technique of assembling small pieces of wood without nails. The washi paper used is handmade in Ogawa, which is a traditional washi paper production center boasting a 1,300-year history and is listed as a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage.
The Kumiko lantern shade made by joining cedar wood gently diffuses light and illuminates the room with lights and shades. The interior washi paper can be replaced with other colors and patterns depending on your mood. Washi papers used for the products are all handmade and one-of-a-kind, so each item varies in color and design. The washi paper adjusts the light, exuding a healing and peaceful atmosphere. Both types fit modern and Japanese taste, while creating a welcoming and friendly environment in camping and outdoor activities.
