Suki 1 Floor Lamp
The Suki 1 Floor Lamp beautifully combines semi-translucent Japanese paper with thin stainless-steel wire. The designer’s goal was to create a contemporary reinterpretation of Isamu Noguchi’s light sculpture “AKARI”. Suki in Japanese term that can mean “transparency,” “making paper by hand,” “empty space,” or “refined taste”. The first three meanings respectively represent the transparency of the paper, handcrafting paper, and a space or a pause (ma). Lighting that uses Japanese paper generally has its light source fully covered by it. However, with SUKI light penetrates the paper and projects geometric forms on the floor and walls. In other words, its structure is broken down to give some space (ma). “Technically, each part is made by hand, and I attempted to bring traditional skills including application of the skill of using water when stretching paper over the frame of Japanese traditional partition (shoji) to sublimation” said Baku.
