You will be provided with Installation & Maintenance Guide but it is your responsibility to hire an electrician to perform the installation of our lamps. IKIGAI is not liable for any damages caused by our products, due to incorrect usage or improper installation. Our pendant lights can be used worldwide from 100 to 250 Volts and are suited for interior use only.
Our pendant lamps are designed for use with LED bulbs only. The bulb should be max 20 Watts. As a comparison – a standard 60 Watt incandescent bulb is equivalent to 11 Watt LED bulb. We suggest to use LED bulbs with warm white temperature as it is similar to the natural sunlight. The lamps on our website have bulbs with color temperature in the range 2,700–3,000K (warm white). All of IKIGAI’s pendant lamps require bulbs with E27 ending.
No special care is required regarding the use and maintenance of our lamps. You might think paper is not the best material for a lighting, don’t you? Well… yeah, BUT our lamps are much stronger than one would expect. We are not saying they are indestructible, but they are actually pretty strong. We have created special paper mixture to obtain such level of sturdiness. Cleaning can be done very easily using a damp cloth but for best results use the small soft brush attachment that comes with your vacuum cleaner. Do not use polishing agents, water or abrasive materials when cleaning.
You are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply. IKIGAI is not liable for delays due to customs.
