Lacquer is a family of pendant lights designed by Keiji Takeuchi. The shape, colour and finish of the pendants are inspired by traditional Japanese lacquerware bowls.

The light source is an integrated LED with a concave diffuser that gives an even, high-quality light. There are 3 sizes and 3 colours available – a pale grey, a deep black and the red of the original inspiration.

Keiji Takeuchi was born in Fukuoka, Japan, but spent most of his youth in New Zealand, where he studied product design. He worked for Naoto Fukasawa in Tokyo and later moved to Milan to set up Naoto’s European office. He established his own studio in Milan in 2015.

During Salone del Mobile 2023, Giulio Cappellini selected Keiji amongst ten international designers and curated a show: Stars of Today, which was exhibited at SuperStudio. Keiji collaborates with various international brands such as Boffi, De Padova, Living Divani, Geiger / Herman Miller, Ligne Roset, Cruso, Fredericia, Ichendorf, Jaxon Koen/Lixil, e'interiors, NINE and others.
