Molecules collection was designed by Ofir Zucker & Albi Serfaty (Aqua creations) in collaboration with origami artist Ilan Garibi. According to the creators, the traditional Japanese art of paper folding begins with a blank sheet of paper that is folded and sculpted by hand into tessellations of individual molecules with no cuts. The paper used for the origami lamp shades perfectly diffuses the light and easily sustains the folding.

In Aqua's tradition, natural materials and artisanal manufacturing interact with technology: the result is an elegant and luxurious lighting collection.
