&Tradition's Raku SH8 is a portable table lamp that has been named and inspired by a traditional Japanese pottery technique. Designed by Sebastian Herkner, the Raku table lamp comprises two contrasting elements: a large ceramic base and a thin metal shade with a perforated edge. The base is adorned by a crackle glaze that is further emphasised when the light is turned on. The ceramic base has been made by hand, resulting in a fully unique crackling pattern.

Thanks to the portable and cordless design, you can place the Raku table lamp anywhere you like, for example on a dining table or windowsill – and move it easily whenever needed. The Raku lamp has a three-step dimmer and a rechargeable battery with an operating time of 11 hours in the brightest setting.
