Glossy look: Chouchin mini lamps by Foscarini

Foscarini released the Chouchin mini lamps by Ionna Vautrin, inspired by Japanese paper lanterns. The mini lamps are a smaller version of the original Chouchin lamps made in 2011 by Vautrin. The body of the lamps are made from blown class painted on the inside, giving the entire lamp an opaque and glossy outer finish. The bottom rim is the only part left uncovered to allow a gentle light to shine through in a downward beam. The Chouchin mini lamps come in two different designs – in long and in short style.

Vautrin, who graduated in 2002 from l’école de design Nantes Atlantique, has worked for Camper in Spain, for George J. Sowden in Italy and for Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec in France. She currently lives and works in Paris.

Foscarini’s first collection of lamps was debuted in 1983, designed by Carlo Urbinati and Alessandro Vecchiato. In 2013, the company opened two new venues in Milan and New York.
