Tekio is Japanese for adaptation: a lighting system based on flexible structures covered by paper modules held together by magnets. By combining various modules, you can create wall lights, vertical pendant lamps, horizontal lines, circles and ovals. Anthony Dickens was inspired by Chochin, the traditional Japanese paper lantern on a trip to Asia in 2010. Santa & Cole works with the best artisans from Japan, combining traditional processes, optimal quality materials and the latest technologies; capitalising on the local cultural heritage and the tradition of working with paper.
