Ama2A recent collaboration between the London-based Cypriot designer Michael Anastassiades and Italian lighting company FLOS yielded a ravishing light installation at London’s Victoria & Albert Museum. Ama—a poetically beautiful art piece comprised of opaline spheres, and arranged in a circle uncannily resembling a giant string of pearls—was conceived by the designer as an homage to the Ama women of Japan, who, in a tradition dating back 2,000 years, plumbed the ocean’s depths in search of watery treasures, including pearls. Residing within Ama’s twenty eight mouth blown opaline spheres, each connected by 24 carat gold-plated brass discs, were LED light elements, which, when illuminated, imbued the perfectly composed arrangement with breathtaking magic. Who could have known that a demure strand of pearls would project such otherworldly power? Ama diagramAmaAma3
