96 molecules
designed by: Ofir Zucker & Albi
Serfaty in collaboration with
Origami artist Ilan Garibi
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. available at:

The sculptural Fiamma lamp is a marvel of organic harmony. The body of the lamp is made from
ancient Swamp Kauri wood dated about 48,000 years. With its sinuous and rhythmic lines, typical
of designs by Karim Rashid, Fiamma Lamp is a sculptural element, a meeting of wood and
modern technology. The LED light runs along the edge of the lamp creating a unique design
effect. available at:

A seed crystal is a tiny crystal used to grow larger crystals; they are order emerging from chaos.
Seed is also the name of a series of lamps by Bec Brittain. An armature of round mitered tube
defines a chaotic void, yet order is imminent as seeds appear. The Seed 01 is featured in
Brushed Brass. available at:

The Flos IC Pendant Lights were designed by Cypriot designer Michael Anastassiades for FLOS
lighting in Italy. IC S by Flos are jewel-like pendant lights that embody Anastassiades' angular
aesthetic. These Flos pendant lamps have a refined and understated elegance. A brilliant
fusion of light and balance, Flos lighting's new IC Lights set out to challenge the equilibrium
of illumination. IC Lights playfully balance light and simplicity. A 30cm glass sphere hangs from
an anthracite stem, protruding out from an improbable slanting baton. The appearance
appears unstable, as if the opalescent ball may fall from its mouring at any time - but that's
exactly what the London-based Cypriot designer was setting out to achieve. The lights reflect
Anastassiades's love of industrial simplicity. He likens the design to a juggling act in which both
sphere and baton are skillfully balanced. available at:

Pendant light consisting of transparent polymetylmetacrylate spheres. The white satinised blown
glass screen, guarantees maximum diffusion of light and prevents glare. In the new LED version
affording high energy efficiency levels and durability, Foscarini wanted to retain all the emotion
of the original model. For this reason, after a lengthy lighting technology design project developed
by Foscarini, the new version with LED light retains the unmistakable effect of this lamp, in which
every sphere recreates the image of the light source inside it and of its surroundings.
