The Formakami Paper Table Lamp JH18 was designed by Jaime Hayon for Danish design house &Tradition in 2018. An ancient icon in a contemporary context makes the Formakami table lamp by Jaime Hayon truly exceptional. Add to that delicate materials like ivory white rice paper and black lacquered oak accents and you have an aesthetic that’s Asian yet somewhat Scandinavian. Exuding an ambient light in a lamp that itself appears light. Place the Formakami table lamp in a modern setting and cultural references disappear. Instead it brings an elegant, decorative element to any window, desk or side table, whether in a hotel lobby, restaurant or home. The soft “ripple” of the rice paper and the bulbous shape of the shade are delicate accents that enhance the sense of illumination. Merging an icon from the past with handcrafted materials in a modern expression is only part of Formakami’s unique appeal. The other part is its ability to create a cosy atmosphere even before you switch it on. The paper shade is handmade with bend oak veneer fittings. The base is made from solid oak wood.

&Tradition reworks design icons from past masters and creates tomorrow’s classics in collaboration with contemporary designers, upholding the tenets of craftsmanship to produce furniture, lighting and accessories that meet modern needs for function, comfort and beauty.

Spanish artist-designer Jaime Hayon was born in Madrid in 1974. After studying industrial design in Madrid and Paris he joined Fabrica – the Benetton-funded design and communication academy in Italy- in 1997 where he directed the design department until 2003. Hayon set up his own studio practice in the year 2000 and dedicated himself fully to his personal projects from 2003 onward, today he is one of the most acclaimed creators worldwide. His singular vision was first fully exposed in ‘Mediterranean Digital Baroque’ at London’s David Gill Gallery, followed by many exhibitions and installations set up in major galleries and museums worldwide in venues like the: Vivid Gallery, Mak Vienna, Groninger Museum, Aram Gallery, London’s Design Museum, Mudac Museum, Gallery Thomas in Munich, Walker art center, Centre Pompidou, as well as the Basel Art Fair, to name a few, attracting the attention of prestigious art collectors worldwide. Today his works are in the permanent collections of some of these institutions. Hayon’s esteem and knowledge of artisan skills and his inherent creativity has allowed him to push the boundaries of many mediums and functions, resulting in collections for very diverse clients. His concern for the conservation of craft skills has joined his path with high-end traditional companies concerned with the evolution of their work. Examples of this are his collaborations with Baccarat, Choemon in Japan, Bosa Ceramiche and Lladro.
