Wieki Somers


The project

Mitate is a series of special lamps consisting of delicate, folded armatures that barely enfold the lighting source. With these lamps, Wieki Somers creates a unique shadow play.


With this nomination, the appreciation for poetic research is expressed. The product line consists of contemporary western lamps with a Japanese signature. With Mitate, Wieki Somers succeeds excellently in making the transition from flat to spatial design: the designs (3D) depict an illustration (2D) in the space.

— Thing that become overly visible I push back into the shadows.Extraneous ornaments I remove, said Somers - Chris Reinewald, Dutch Design Jaarboek, 2013
