Chouchin by Ionna Vautrin for Foscarini

July 19th, 2011 by retail design blog

Chouchin is the Japanese word for the traditional, symbolic paper and bamboo lanterns used as light, luminous signs outside public places or as lucky charms outside homes. They are inspired by this ethereal, poetic and… almost magical object and has reinterpreted it in a contemporary key. It has an essential and, at the same time, evocative design: the glass body, obtained through a single blowing process, is closed by a collar underneath. Colour played a key role in the choice of materials: glass offers a warm surface on which the varnish produces a full, brilliant colour.
