Tekio by Anthony Dickens
View Slideshow

Anthony Dickens’ travels as well as the Japanese Cochin paper lantern inspired the Tekio lighting system. Tekio is the Japanese word for “adaptation,” and that perfectly reflects the new lighting that he designed. The framed paper tubes can be bent and connected into any shape that you desire so your options are limitless. Each section easily unlocks to make bulb changing easy.

The modular system is currently a prototype but will be available next year.
