Concept

Molecules, is a comprehensive lighting collection based on the origami art of Ilan Garibi. 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 mahogany wood structures which derive their shape by digital wood carving (CNC). The lamps are 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.
