The shades are made from a laser cut, galvanized metal structure sprayed with clear polymer resulting in a white membrane that perfectly distributes the light coming from an energy saving CFL bulb. The shades are sculpted by hand allowing some variations to occur from shade to shade; nevertheless, the general dimensions are maintained. Mimosa is a highly customizable collection and may be adapted to fit spaces of any size.
While the materials as always play a key role in the design and development, those used here are not new to the Atelier. Ayala Serfaty has been using polymer for her Soma Light Sculptures for many years and has now used this sophisticated technique on her latest lamps designed for Aqua.
