"Kanji" Blown Glass Wide Table Lamp Designed by Denis Guidone for Fontana Arte

About

"Kanji" is a wide table lamp, designed by Denis Guidone and manufactured by Fontana Arte, made in blown glass with two finishes, transparent smoky gray and frosted white, and structure and handle in black painted metal. It's provided with a dimmer and lighting source is 10W LED (2700K, CRI>80, Lumen 1000). Dimensions: Ø 16.8", H 15.3" "Kanji" is a collection of lighting elements that reinterprets traditional oriental portable lanterns in a contemporary vision. Available in tabletop and ceiling models, it draws inspiration from Chinese porcelain dating from the Ming dynasty. The handblown glass diffuser, in frosted white and translucent smoky gray, is adorned with a pleated surface decoration. A LED ring runs inside the structure and magically illuminates the diffuser. Evocative of Far East not only as form but also as a name, as "Kanji" are characters of Chinese origin used in Japanese writing in conjunction with the Hiragana and Katakana syllabaries, "Kanji" is designed to be used alone or in pairs, with each form amplifying the aesthetic power of the other. Denis Guidone studied architecture at the Politecnico di Milano and at FAUP in Oporto. He won numerous international awards, including the IDA Design Award in Los Angeles. He was also given the Bruno Munari Prize by Gillo Dorfles in 2009 at the Triennale di Milano and was selected for the ADI index 2010 and later received honorable mention at Young & Design 2012. He lives and works between Milan and Tokyo, working in the fields of architecture and product design and for firms such as FontanaArte, Roche Bobois, Nava Design, Ichendorf, Serax, Projects Watches, Shuji Nakagawa and Arita Risogama.
