Tradition and modernity go hand in hand in this new porcelain chandelier, just as the purity of the metal lines is seamlessly fused with the delicacy of handcrafted porcelain flowers.
Mokuren porcelain chandelier by Naoto Fukasawa for Lladró
"When I saw the flower and thought of white porcelain, its texture and qualities, the idea came to me immediately," Fukasawa claims. And this is how Mokuren came into being, a porcelain chandelier that couples signature elements of the work of the Japanese artist and Lladró: nature, craft and design.
The flowers of the magnolia are attributed with meanings like nobility, while their slender exotic forms are believed to be among the most beautiful in nature. Lladró's expert artisans handcraft all the flowers in the Mokuren porcelain chandelier at its workshops in Valencia.

"When you see a magnolia tree in flower, you get the impression that something powerful has suddenly taken place in the natural world," the designer explains.
Naoto Fukasawa for Lladró to present Mokuren, the new porcelain chandelier
"I have the feeling that I wish to remain on the kogei (craft) side of things. But when it comes to lighting, it has to be interpreted from the viewpoint of design. Mokuren is a triumph of both. It was the perfect mix," concludes Naoto Fukasawa.
