Technical consulting – Musée Noguchi – New York

“The Akari Unfolded exhibition is the result of Valerie Maltaverne visit to the Noguchi Museum in 2016. This is where the idea of ​​a collaboration was born, whose aim would be to use her methodology to push Akari’s basic alchemy to the future by combining traditional craftsmanship and new technologies to produce a timeless design. The initial project was to create six lamps inspired by Akari’s values, as if Noguchi had access to today’s materials and technologies. Finally, YMER & MALTA has collaborated with six designers and more than twenty artisans with each distinct know-how. Overcoming many technical hurdles – YMER & MALTA pushed flax, metal, plexiglass, paper, resin, porcelain in several directions and produced twenty-nine lamps, which join the dazzling and everlasting expansion of the heritage of ‘Akari.”
– Dakin Hart, Senior curator, Noguchi Museum

Light is More has contributed its lighting technical expertises in the definition, manufacture and integration of light sources for each of the luminaires of the different designers.
