  • Catalogue Essay

    The "Kukui (Glow)" floor lamp is hand-sculpted by artist John Koga in a proprietary plasterglass material. The fluid, abstract form recalls the natural beauty of John’s native Hawaii—the curves of the mountains, the flowing rivers, the ocean waves—and conveys a sense of serenity, balance, and space. The piece has a textured, matte finish, ensuring that it retains the unique 'hand of the artist.'"
