Design Geekery: Anthony Dickens’ Tekio

Modular lighting system for the brave and the bold...

Anthony Dickens’ Tekio wound itself in and out, around and through his stand at The Farmiloe Building as part of Clerkenwell Design Week, like some sort of friendly glow-worm. Inspired by traditional Japanese ‘chochin’ paper lamps, Tekio (Japanese for adaptation) is intended to be a flexible and modular lighting system that can be configured to suit your space – and your bravery with statement lighting.

It can be used with a choice of bulbs, although Dickens says the paper diffuses light from LEDs really nicely, making the environmental choice an aesthetic choice too. Having shown the prototype at London Design Festival in September, Tekio was officially launched at CDW. Anthony Dickens founded his studio with the aim of creating “simple, functionally innovative and thought-provoking objects, subverting archetypal forms and re-imagining the everyday things that surround us.” Mission accomplished, I’d say.
