Artistic and raw; full of artisan details, but still simplistic and unassuming, the Hanoi lamp is a perfect piece to transport the South East Asian vibe into your interior space. In Vietnam and other parts of the region, bamboo and ceramics are essential parts of the economy and the livelihood of the people who live there. The fact that bamboo is finally getting the exposure and usage that it deserves is important, too. As a grass, it grows quickly and contributes mightily to the preservation of the climate, and helps to remove carbon from the air, thanks to its abundance and easy cultivation.
The people of the region have been sitting on the secrets of bamboo for many generations, and the utility and beauty of this grass derivative are present in the Hanoi lamp, a ceramic structure covered in bamboo strips. The bamboo stalks of the Vietnamese fields have helped to fuel immense growth in the region and helped to secure better lifestyles and security for the craftspeople of Southeast Asia. It is also a beautiful reminder of the lush green color of the bamboo as it grows, and the strength and longevity of the blonde, dried outer layer as it is used to produce such viable products.
