Jīnzu: jeans uit Japan
The Newfound Comrades lamps Bīkon, Doshī and Hippī are now also available in jeans. This denim comes from Okayama, an area famous for their Ikat. Dyeing yarn indigo is in their genes and when denim became popular in the 1970s, they knew what to do with it. The exceptional quality of this Japanese jīnzu conquered the world. The authentic selvedge denim is woven in narrow widths on machines. That size used to be just right for kimonos, today it's perfect for our handmade lamps. The selvedge with the red thread stands for premium quality and we are of course happy to show it.
Originally, Bīkon was designed as a table lamp for a restaurant: it feels at home on the table and creates a lot of atmosphere - a candle is then superfluous. But the small lamp is also perfect for lighting up a dark corner. It does not take up much space, it fits in the bookcase and certainly on the windowsill or mantelpiece. Bīkon is also a pleasantly soft bedside lamp or a companion next to the laptop, cozy if work never seems finished. Bīkon in jeans has a red fabric cord.
Doshī is designed as a lamp for next to the sofa or at the head of the bed. It is made to shine on its own. Paired, so a lamp to the left and right of the bed or sofa, is of course a real classic arrangement. Doshī has just the right height, it looks good on the bedside table or side table. It looks beautiful and certainly a bit dignified on a high console table. On an extra wide desk or work table this lamp wil evoke admiration. Doshī in jeans has a red fabric cord.
Hippī is designed as a floor lamp. The narrow high shade gives the lamp a little bit of a sixties retro twist. Comrade Hippī can stand directly on the floor or on a low table/bench. And recently we saw him standing on a dresser, unexpected but very beautiful. Hippī in jeans has a red fabric cord.
