Yamagiwa

Author: Bianca KILLMANN Posted in Lighting

Year: 1977

Verner Panton named his lamp sketched in 1977 after the Japanese light manufacturer yamagiwa. From a huge number of varnished metal lamellae (white or glazed) vertically compound, her bulbous form reminds of those of an onion. Besides, the single stripe segments cover the heart of the lamp, the light source. Thus the lamellae are conceived differently illuminated what lets a mysterious depth arise. Artificial accompanying effect: The light is reflected and illuminates his surroundings in a unique way. VerPan discovered the light again and brought it back to us as the onion in 2007.

Material: varnished metal
Producer: yamagiwa, Japan
