TekiŌ is a modular lighting systemdesigned by Anthony Dickens. Derivingits name from the Japanese word for ‘adaptation’, the design was inspired byDickens’ travel to the Far East in 2010. The prototype takes the idea of thetraditional Japanese paper ‘Cochin’ lantern into a new, design-led dimension.
TekiŌ’s innovation lies in itsflexibility. Inside each paper tube is a frame that can be bent from straightto ninety degrees. All the frames connect and lock into any desiredshape. The paper sections are supported by the frame, but can easily beseparated to access the choice of LED or halogen bulbs.
Customers have the freedom toconstruct the light as they wish, from a semicircular wall light to a largelooped installation.
Tekio is different. It can be a standalone pendant, a wall light and even developed into a floor lamp, but you can do so much more than that. You can trace the outline of a table, seating area, bar, room, or simply have a straight or wiggly line of light passing between two walls. It is more than just a light, it becomes a tool to divide space and highlight certain areas or create an unbroken line of light employed to guide people through an unfamiliar space. The possibilities are endless...
