Known for her delicate light sculptures frequently exhibited in galleries across the globe, the Israeli designer Ayala Serfaty has created this series of beautifully sculptural, translucent lamps called ‘Mino.’ The lights feature a meticulously ruched silk drapery sculpted over a rectangular polycarbonate, vacuum-formed shell which is backlit with energy saving bulbs. Manufactured by Aqua Creations, a Tel Aviv-based design studio established by Serfaty and her husband in 1994, ‘Mino’ is available in three sizes with the largest one also doubling as a room divider.
More about the lamp:
‘With its modernist shapes the new Mino lighting pieces are a perfect complementto Aqua’s existing silk lighting collections. Mino adds streamlined, geometricshapes to the Atelier’s range of floor lamps. Instead of sculpting the silk on hand bent metal, itis sculpted over a specially developed polycarbonate, vacuum formed shell litwith energy saving CFL bulbs. Another special feature of this collection is thepossibility of up to two silk colors in one shade. The shape together with theenvelope silk draping, gives the shades an elegant yet humble expression.’
