The “Yacaman Wall” is part of the Yacaman collection, the first series of luminaires designed by Paola Jose. The project has a personal and profound meaning: It is a tribute to her father and grandfather, both doctors, brilliant, and both departed.
These luminous objects are the creation of a living memory, a memory that will remain present, infinite. When Paola was a child, she used to visit them at their medical office and saw these giant metallic objects, these luminaires that directed light towards the patient’s wound to heal. Now, these objects make sense to her, to her work, to her memories, to her lineage.
Convex figures project a distorted light yet warm and subtle. A golden light expands, travels through space, and heals, just like the great Dr. Yacaman.
The “Yacaman Wall” generates a harmonic interaction between the materiality of the light that is reflected on a secondary body, and the sobriety of the metallic pieces that conform the luminaire.
For installation, use latex gloves and for cleaning, use a microfiber cloth with alcohol.
