Mariyo Yagi ‘Garbo’ fringe light Sirrah, Italy 1976

Price Upon Request
  • Description
    Mariyo Yagi is a Japanese sculptor whose artistic practice is based on her Nawa rope principle: Spiral energy and human beings as metaphorical rope, twisted and twined, stronger together. Braided rope is a longstanding motif and material within her work. Yagi’s collaboration with the Italian lighting producer Sirrah can be understood to be part of the era’s burgeoning trend for collaborations between Italian manufacturers and Japanese designers such as Kazuhide Takahama and Shiro Kuramata.

    The Garbo series designed for Dino Gavina, produced by Sirrah harnesses Yagi’s rope motif in a fringe of light. A mounted ceiling box houses a series of bulbs that illuminate the interior of a long rope curtain. The light is both sculptural and functional, a beautiful partition within spaces. The lamp is in very good condition, with minor losses to the nylon rope in two places. This light has been PAT tested and wired for use in the UK.
