Introduction: Lamp Kumiko Shoji Style. Fusion 360

I am inspired by the art of Kumiko Shoji and I created a lamp with simple geometric patterns.


In traditional Japanese architecture, a shōji (障子?) is a door, window or room divider consisting of translucent paper over a frame of wood which holds together a lattice of wood or bamboo.

In modern Japan, shoji means wooden sliding doors with translucent paper on. These doors slide on wood tracks very smoothly and quietly, work as a room divider or window coverings.

Craftsmanship - “Kumiko” woodwork technique

“Kumiko”, in short, is a delicate technique of assembling wooden pieces without nails.

Thinly slit wooden pieces are grooved, punched and mortised, and then are assembled and joined one by one with plane, saw, chisel and other tools while fine adjustments are made. The “Kumiko” woodwork technique was developed in Japan in the Asuka Era (600-700 AD) and has since been refined and passed down through generations of craftsmen.
