Tekio by Anthony Dickens.

Subversive designer, Anthony Dickens, has showcased a prototype of his conceptual lighting system, named ‘Tekio’. Inspired by traditional Japanese ‘Chochin’ lanterns, Anthony Dickens took over an exhibition space in Brick Lane, coiling the tubular lanterns through and across the walls.

The unique nature of the design means it is limited only by the individuals creativity and intentions. The variations displayed at the exhibition show that the lights can be configured to accommodate a variety of styles and uses, ranging from simple hanging lights, minimalist corner installations or the grander industrial style configurations. How well the lights work with the wooden surfaces of the exhibition space is also a point of interest (Especially for us!), the soft-yellow glow radiated from the lamps compliments the texture and colour of the wood perfectly. Hopefully we’ll see someone take the ‘Tekio’ concept and employ it on a larger scale.
