Akari Unfolded Collection For The Noguchi Museum
YMER&MALTA / Benjamin Graindorge
Inspired by the graphics of Japanese kimonos, edaLight combines a unique, but simple paper folding technique with an organic handcrafted metal structure.
The paper works as a reflector. As in the Akari Series from the 50’s, the assembling of the paper is part of the experience of this lamp, a deeper contact that allows the user a feeling of being part in the making of the piece.
This piece was presented at The Noguchi Museum, at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, de la Faïence et de la Mode in Marseille and at the Fondation Cartier in Paris.
