  • About the Product

    Koi is a huge carp made of light and wood, a spectacular light structure, half-lamp, half-sculpture. The inspiration for this wonderful idea came from an interlacing wood system and the transparencies it produced when lit. The system, consisting in the overlaying of wooden slats as if they were fish scales, is called the モKoi Fabricヤ, and was used for making iluminated walls. The result is a stunning handcrafted piece measuring more than three metres from head to tail. Koi consists of a wooden frame, constructed using traditional Valencian carpentry techniques, which supports the skin made of dozens of small wood veneer pieces.
  • The Brand

    Design duo Sandro Totthil and Marivi Calvo kicked off their company in 1994, originally naming it Luzifer. The first lamps were simple upright hand-painted wood tubes that Calvo, an artist, designed. The couple hired a stand at the Madrid Gift Fair to sell their wares and enjoyed their first big break when a buyer for a hotel project in Mallorca saw the lamps and ordered 700 units.
