The Okura Lantern


The yellow warm light coming through the Japanese paper, Washi were shining above our head. This warm yellow light is one of the signatures of Hotel Okura. When we come into the hotel in the evening, this light will implicate with you into the Okura atmosphere. The lamp was vertically hanged from the roof. This straight vertical line showed the high roof at the lobby.

This lamp was inspired from the faceted glass on the Tumulus period (250-538 CE). The faceted glass, whose shape was rhombic hexahedrons, was made of glass, crystal or agate. The faceted glass was jewelry, hanged around the neck of ladies or gentleman.
