    The Mahbruky floor lamp is part of the MaMo Nouchies series produced by Ingo Maurer in association with Dagmar Mombach in 1998. The use of paper by Isamu Noguchi was the catalyst for the cross-cultural designs which emerged from the series. Like all lamps in the series, the Mahbruky is made completely by hand and includes all five elements pictured on a single base. Plain sheets of handmade paper are transformed into different shapes by folding and pulling the paper. Several years of development went into discovering the perfect texture for these pieces, lamps which are not so much designed, but shaped.

    Ingo Maurer's long-standing interest in materials and his passion for paper are combined with his admiration for Japanese art. With the MaMo Nouchies, Maurer and Dagmar Mombach, who developed the technique for transforming the paper, pay homage to Isamu Noguchi, whose ideas were based on the traditional Japanese craft of Akari. The name of the series comes from the first two letters of Maurer's and Mombach's last names, along with Nouchies, a pun on Noguchi. The names of the individual lamps are named after ancient tribal spirits from all over the world.

    Mombach's technique, all performed by hand according to the Japanese tradition, involves the manipulation of plain sheets of paper, by pulling and folding. Often up to eight separate treatments are needed to create the desired effect.
