An Origami Artist & Aqua Creations Introduce Molecules, A Lamp Collection

Recently unveiled at Milan Design Week was this new collection of lamps. Molecules is a comprehensive lighting collection based on the origami art of Ilan Garibi and designed in collaboration with industrial designer Ofir Zucker and Albi Serafty of Aqua Creations*.

The traditional Japanese art of paper folding begins with a blank sheet of paper which is folded and sculpted by hand into tessellations of individual molecules, with no cuts. The paper used for the origami lamp shades perfectly diffuses the light and easily resists the folding.



A complement and contrast at the same time are the superior wood structures which derive their shape by digital wood carving. the on/off switch is seamlessly integrated into the wood neck:

and the base has a subtle convex curve to accommodate the cord:

The lamps are powered by digitally dimmable LEDs, operated and controlled by touch. In Aqua’s tradition, natural materials and artisanal manufacturing interact with technology; the result is an elegant and luxurious lighting collection.







*Aqua Creations Lighting & Furniture Atelier was founded in 1994 by designer-artist Ayala Serfaty and photographer Albi Serfaty.
*Ilan Garibi is represented by Talents Design in Tel Aviv.
