We love discovering what Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec have been working on. Their designs are usually refreshing — a modern twist on a traditional idea. A recent collaboration with Japan Brand resulted in the Wajima Collection — home accessories that incorporate traditional Japanese lacquer techniques into modern uses and applications. In this case a desk light, unique lamp and a lunch tray... • Ronan & Erwan with the Wajima collection — Wajima is an area of Japan known for it's lacquerwork. • An LED Desk Light, incorporates a tray for items. • An LED Box light creates a lit vignette for objects and display. • The lunch tray uses magnets and a unique shape for what is a very traditional use of Japanese lacquer. The Bouroullec's collaboration with Japan Brand is well documented on the Bouroullec site — the use of traditional manufacturing techniques for modern objects is the most important aspect of this collaboration.
