    Ingo Maurer Samurai MaMo Nouchies Series Lamp
    Designer: Dagmar Mombach
    Manufacturer: Ingo Maurer

    Exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, New York.

    Samurai is an original formed table lamp from the MaMo Nouchies Series by Ingo Maurer. This lamp, which resembles a calyx, is formed artisticly out of natural colored paper, in whose center two stainless steel bars with transparent silicon batons accommodate. The metal base of the Samurai secures a safe stand, a stainless steel connection cable, and a cord transformer with slide control.

    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.
