For a new show at Galerie Kreo in Paris, Dutch designer Wieki Somers traveled to Japan for inspiration for a ‘family’ of seven floor lamps. Inspired by the country’s customs and traditions, Somers created a collection of Samurai-flag-like light poles, many with simple wood plank bases with wood or metal poles heightening the “flag” light form. One, based on geisha’s sun-shielding fabric, takes the form of an abstract black umbrella, while another takes its abstracted form from a traditional doll, dancing with several hats. All convey the lightness and simplicity in form, along with elegance and attention to detail, that much of Japanese culture is known for.
