Maki, designed by Studio Nendo for Foscarini, is a really evocative lamp, presented at Euroluce in 2011. This product has been developed from the idea of rolling up together, one inside the other, two circular paper sheets and trapping inside them the light beams. Maki means “to roll up” in Japanese and this Foscarini lamp really reminds of a seashell or a flower. The light it produces is of two different kinds: one is direct and functional, the other one is soft and diffuse, like mood light. The original feature is that Maki is not shaping the light, but it is the light itself that creates the lamp’s shape.
