WHO am I?
I am AKI
WHAT am I?
I am a glass oil lamp – a modern interpretation of an ancient vessel, with a contemporary geometric form and pure, shimmering colours.
WHERE did I come from?
I was designed in Italy and handcrafted in the Czech Republic, but my story goes much deeper than that. I have existed in various guises for thousands of years, and across numerous cultures and traditions. I speak many different languages, and I come from many different places. But although I have a long and varied past, I always look to the future. I have adapted to suit contemporary spaces and tastes, and to respond to 21st-century needs. I am old, yet forever young.
I am also deeply rooted in nature. Its forests, seas, rivers, mountains, lakes and plains inspired my shape, the materials I am made from and the many beautiful hues I wear. And a respect for nature and its resources drives how I behave, how I am marketed and distributed, and how I am produced.
