DESIGN Nendo | MANUFACTURER Foscarini
Take two sheets of paper and roll them up together, creating something that resembles a seashell or a flower… an intuitive object both poetic and beguiling. Maki was conceived by a spontaneous natural inspiration, becoming a design product only after a challenging development process. As if made of paper, two aluminium sheets were rolled up and one slipped inside the other. Only with incisions, invisible when the lamp is assembled, could the creators obtain the proper play of light. The simple form of Maki plays with the immaterial nature of light, integrating it as an important decorative element: the side glare is filtered by the edges of the rolled-up metallic sheets, creating a dynamic yet soft effect. While light is also cast directly down, as a soft spot beam. This dual luminous effect allows Maki to be charming all alone or in linear compositions to illuminate counters and peninsulas. The white or pale grey color choice enhances the pureness of Maki’s inspiration; its lightness and poetic appeal is a luminous idea in any domestic or communal setting.
