The story behind this product

Emitting a beautiful soft light, the Rubin series by Matthew Hilton is a modern take on a traditional Japanese lantern, and is exclusive to Heal’s.

Blending Matthew’s minimalistic hand-writing with true Japanese craftsmanship, this series of three paper shades use traditional lantern making techniques and authentic strips of mino washi paper – a type of hand-made Japanese paper created in Gifu Prefecture, Japan.

This stunning pendant collection is named after the celebrated Rubin’s vase, a famous set of ambiguous or bi-stable two-dimensional forms developed around 1915 by the Danish psychologist Edgar Rubin. This captures the essence of the two varying cylinders found within the lanterns.

  • The Rubin collection uses traditional lantern making techniques and authentic strips of mino washi paper - a type of hand-made Japanese paper created in Gifu Prefecture, Japan.

  • The hand-made wooden frames are carefully hand-threaded with wire, which forms the base of the paper shade. Individual pieces of Mino washi paper are then pasted in turn onto the frame, and hand-cut with true skill and precision. Once dry, the wooden frame is expertly released from inside the paper shade, which can now be compressed and opened as needed, in the traditional lantern making process.

  • Designed in three sizes, add impact to your interior by clustering several Rubin lanterns together for a light-weight solution to statement lighting

  • Using two paper forms, once on, the light reveals it's inner cylinder and the lantern radiates a soft mood light.
