About the Collection Ingo Maurer MaMo Nouchies
MaMo Nouchies is a tribute to the sculptor and designer Isamu Noguchi, and includes various, carefully handcrafted sculptural lights made of paper. They provide dimmable, cozy light and make a beautiful design statement even when switched off.
The collection was developed in 1998 by Dagmar Mombach, the Munich-based light artist Ingo Maurer and his team, and is manufactured in Dagmar Mombach's manufactury using a complex, artistic process. Each lamp is unique.
The term "MaMo Nouchies" has been formed by the first syllables from the names "Maurer" and "Mombach" and includes a pun on the name "Noguchi". The Japanese-American designer was known for the organic, flowing design language of his sculptures. He also created the designer classic Akari, gracefully lightweight paper lamps that combine traditional Japanese aesthetics with a modern feel.
MaMo Nouchies includes various models with surreal, amusing shapes and evocative names. Since 2020, the Kokoro, Poul Poul, Samurai and Wo-Tum-Bu 2 light fixtures are available as LED versions, emitting a warm white light, with a colour coming very close to the halogen lamps' used for the former version.
Thanks to their beautiful, pleated paper diffusers, all lamps provide a soft light that can be dimmed continuously. They can be placed on tables and sideboards or even on the floor, are suitable for representative spaces as well as for living rooms or bedrooms in tastefully decorated private apartments.
The MaMo Nouchies lights are only suitable for use in dry interiors and should be protected from moisture, strong drafts and extreme sunlight.
