The Aka_Tsuki wall lamp by Ingo Maurer is both a luminaire and an artistic lighting object, characterised by a charming interplay of light, colour and form. It was designed by Matthias Liedtke in 2003. Illuminated from an opal glass sphere, a red-pigmented bowl floats spatially in front of the wall. With its clear language of form, it brings a pleasantly calm decorative element to rooms of all kinds.
"Akatsuki" is the Japanese word for "dawn" and literally means "red moon". In this sense, a red, round and slightly curved bowl is the central element of the design, which is illuminated by a separate light source that reflects its light into the room. The light source is located inside a small opal glass sphere that is attached to a small rod and seems to protrude from the wall. The bowl is separately attached above the ball and both elements seem to float freely in front of the wall.
With a sliding dimmer, the light intensity can be regulated continuously.
