Minimal lines and unusual volumes for solutions that are particularly suitable for showing contract environments to their best advantage. Ukiyo - meaning “floating world” in Japanese - was inspired by an artistic technique that became very popular in Edo (now Tokyo) between the XVII and early XX century.

The shape of the lamp, which has striking characteristics but 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 characterised by their contrasting delicate colourful curves and pointed cuspidals. Ukiyo lights have a metallic structure covered with a two layer, elasticised high-tech fabric. The special weave and various layers of fabric produce a fascinating light and shade effect. Ukiyo is an original light with a flexible nature that metamorphoses and produces innovative furnishing combinations.

It is available in three different colour versions: white-white, orange-black and black-white in three sizes (55x55 cm – 110x110 cm – 110x55 cm). It is also available in an energy-saving fluorescent version.
