Visits to traditional Japanese Washi papermakers inspired Norm Architects to create the Hashira Floor Lamp for MENU. A fusion of East and West, tradition and modernity, and a balance of proportion, simplicity, and character, Hashira is equally suited to private homes as it is to restaurants, hotels, and office spaces.
The Hashira Collection is a modern, Nordic take on the traditional Japanese rice paper lantern. Taking its name from the Japanese word for column or pillar, the textile lamps fill a space with cozy, ambient light and, true to the nature of the lantern that inspired the collection’s creation, the slender structure is visible through the shade, lending the glowing column a graphic expression. The lamp is offered in table, floor, and pendant iterations, and the subdued silhouette and versatile nature of its design make it ideal in a private home —placed on the floor, atop a console, or suspended from the ceiling — as well as in a professional setting, alone or in clusters.
