Mr Maria’s Kokeshi lamp gets a new look

Kokeshi has been part of the Mr Maria family for many years. Recently she got a new look: her happy eyes now suit her joyful smile much better.

She’s a known and loved member of the Mr Maria family: Kokeshi. A source of inspiration for this design were the traditional Kokeshi dolls that were traditionally gifted after a child was born in Japan. The reason? Because the dolls would bring the baby a life full of happiness and joy. This is a beautiful gesture that suits Mr Maria perfectly, therefore the Kokeshi lamp was made.

Kokeshi brings warmth and light with her new look

It’s certain that Kokeshi has a positive, joyful message that wasn’t adequately represented in her original design, according to Mr Maria. Therefore the choice was made to reshape her eyes to smaller twinkling eyes created by laughter, in stead of the half circles that were once her window to the world. Thanks to this change, the amount of darkness on the lamp has significantly decreased, creating a lamp that much better suits Mr Maria ‘s style. 

Kokeshi is back in stock and available in our webshop, for €149,- euros she’ll light up your home with her happy smile.
