Chouchin is the Japanese name for a traditional paper and bamboo lantern, but the Italian lighting powerhouse’s version is mouth-blown glass. Created by designer Ionna Vautrin, the piece is covered with a colored varnish that is impervious to light so illumination funnels through it to the opening. Three colors and shapes are available. Cost: $691 to $830. Foscarini. 39-041-595-3811. www.foscarini.com.
