The exclusive Japanese Hokore pendant is an impressive construction in almost 1000 pieces of bamboo, handmade for the Danish brand, Motarasu, by the Japanese artist, Tani Toshiyuki, together with a number of bamboo masters. Hokore means proud in Japanese, and the inspiration for the lamp comes from the strength of a flower bud.
Using the traditional Japanese art of construction, Takeensuji - a technique traditionally used to make insect cages and paper lanterns - the lamp builds on tradition while adding modern look and utility.
Motarasu was founded in 2019 by Mikkel Zebitz. Zebitz is inspired by Japanese design and aesthetics. But where classic Danish designers, as well as contemporary ones, have largely let Japan serve as inspiration, Zebitz wanted to change this and collaborate directly with Japanese designers: "Motarasu" means "to change" in Japanese.
Art and nature are the key elements in designs from Motarasu, who work from the showroom in Frederiksgade in Copenhagen.
The pendant will eventually take on the classic, soft amber colour. When the lamp is used in a room with high ventilation or with lots of sunlight, the amber color will appear faster.
Please note that the color of the lamp may differ slightly from the colors in the photographs here, so we cannot guarantee a perfect color match. The bamboo used can also vary slightly in appearance from lamp to lamp.
