Tokonoma Lighting Collection by Aqua Creations
Israeli designers Albi Serfaty of Aqua Creations and Eitan Ben Tovim have designed the Tokonoma lighting collection. In designer’s words, “The inspiration for this collection came from Tokonoma, a Japanese style reception area in which objects for natural and artistic appreciation and inspiration are displayed. The Tokonoma lamps were created in the spirit of such objects. The collection is refined and strikes through understated aesthetics and contemporary design.
The materials used are handmade felt for the shades, and wood for the supporting stands. Aqua’s artisans make the felt in four different finishes, using the finest merino wool and pure silk. Each finish represents one of the four seasons; Harn for Spring, Natsu for Summer, Aki for Autumn and Fuyu for Winter. The wooden stands are shaped by digital wood carving. The lamps are powered by digitally dimmable LEDs, operated and controlled by touch.”
