The MaMo Nouchies, a collection of sculptured lamps from designer Ingo Maurer, will be exhibited at the Design Centre in Barnsley from 22 March to 26 April. Maurer draws his influences for the collection from Japanese designer Isamu Noguchi, whose lamps are based on the traditional craft of akari-making, and Dagmar Mombach, who uses a technique for transforming and pleating paper by hand. The exhibition, the brochure for which is designed by Maurer’s consultancy, is held in collaboration with the Plateaux Gallery.
