The clean and contemporary aesthetic of the Suzusan Luminaires almost distracts people away from the true selling point of these light fixtures: their texture. Inspired by the Japanese textile finishing technique known as shibori, each lamp design boasts three-dimensional patterns that contrast beautifully with the ivory color palette. Although this unique technique is virtually unknown in the Western world, it can be likened to the process of tie-dying.

Created by Hiroyuki Murase, the eldest son of Suzusan director Hiroshi Murase, the Suzusan Luminaires transfers the cultural meaning behind the shibori texture into a modern European context. The Suzusan Luminaires are available in various shapes and sizes. From large, circular ceiling lights to tall and slim floor lamps, they are great for many spaces.
