"ANDON TRIANGLE" is a lighting fixture that beautifully incorporates a triangle that is the most attractive form of designers and masterpieces into the frame. A neat design that is reminiscent of modernist architecture while retaining a Japanese taste. A lantern made of Mino Japanese paper with excellent translucency is incorporated inside the frame to give off a soft light.
Its sophisticated appearance and calm light are the lighting that softens the space. This lighting was launched by the long-established lantern maker "Asano Shoten" in Gifu with the support of the traditional craft revitalization project. It was produced as part of the "Project (Lux Project)". Jasper Morrison and Yoko Dobashi are also participating in the project.
