Located in the city of Wajima at the very end of the Noto Peninsula that juts into the Japan Sea is an “appliance shop for ships” that has been beloved for 50 years, Nitto Electric Ltd.
The Kaiyo Todai (Marine Lamp Stand) takes its inspiration from the working lamps on fishing boats. These waterproof and durable shipboard lamps have been adapted for home use. Designed for daily use, the lamp guard is made from brass that gains its own unique character with use, and Japanese zelkova is used for the lamp stand.
The light that radiates from the lamp’s beautiful form creates the illusion of the night sea, adding richness to an ordinary day while still blending into everyday life. Kaiyo Todai is certain to bring a fresh perspective.
Manufacturer: Nitto Electric Ltd. in Wajima, Ishikawa Prefecture (www.210dk.jp)
