Product Description

The Jimken from the MaMo Nouchies Series by Ingo Maurer is Exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. Jimken has such a sculptural presence that it is more a piece of art than a lowely common pendant light. The calyx shaped shade of the Jimken is formed artisticly out of natural finely creased handmade paper

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, Ingo 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.
