Anthony Dickens – world launch: Tekio Clerkenwell Design week 2012

Tekio is a modular lighting system inspired after Dickens’ travels to the Far East. Paper lanterns were invented in China and used extensively at festivals in Japan. The American-Japanese designer Isamu Noguchi is credited with bringing them to the attention of the West in the 1930s. Taking the idea of the traditional Japanese paper lantern into a new, design-led dimension, Tekio’s innovation lies in its flexibility: inside each paper tube is a frame that can be bent from straight to 90° and locked into any desired shape. You Can see Anthony Dickens at Clerkenwell Design week in the Farmiloe Building 22-24 May 2012.

Last year we nearly killed ourselves carrying eight huge pieces of furniture and their respective stands down 300-year old, narrow, winding staircases into a damp crypt. This year our space is at ground level and just yards from where we were able to park the van. Yay!
