Ukiyo lights give Japanese accents to lighting design by Axo Light. The wall and ceiling lights are designed to create optical effects and an interplay of volumes and fabrics. Minimal lines and unusual volumes for solutions that are particularly suitable for showing contract environments to their best advantage. Ukiyo lights have a metallic structure covered with a two-layer, elasticized high-tech fabric. The special weave and various layers of fabric produce a fascinating light and shade effect.
Ukiyo - meaning “floating world” in Japanese - was inspired by an artistic technique that became very popular in Tokyo between the XVII and early XX century. The shape of the lamp, which has striking characteristics but comes together as a gentle whole, re-evokes the style of marine images, with the rippling water, and mountain landscapes shown in ancient ukiyo-e, Japanese art prints characterized by their contrasting delicate colorful curves and pointed cuspidals.
Ukiyo is an original light with a flexible nature that metamorphoses and produces innovative furnishing combinations.
