The Samurai table lamp is part of the MaMo Nouchies collection a project of Ingo Maurer in collaboration with Dagmar Mombach back in ‘98. The use of paper was the catalyst for the cross cultural creations which emerged from this collection. Just like all lighting fixtures in this collection, this table lamp is handcrafted. Plain sheets of paper are transformed into several different designs by folding and pulling the paper. Few years of creating went into searching for an ideal texture for these pieces. It stands 29.5 inches high, and has a continuously variable transformer dimmer for ambiance lighting and a fifty-watt light bulb.
