"The Harmony of Form and Function"

As a world-renowned Japanese lighting manufacturer with a legacy spanning one hundred years, YAMAGIWA presents “The Harmony of Form and Function” exhibition representing the finest examples of Japanese craftsmanship. We invite you to experience the captivating beauty of the "TALIESIN" light fixtures series designed by legendary American architect Frank Lloyd Wright, in a specially designed interior installation created by renowned Japanese architect Shigeru Ban.

YAMAGIWA is a Japanese lightning company, which offers high-quality and innovative lighting, participating in Milan Design Week 2023, and it will be the first time in twelve years since we have exhibited at this international design event.

In this era of technological advancements, where artificial intelligence and virtual reality are rapidly gaining traction, we have chosen to showcase the human-centered design of Frank Lloyd Wright in our exhibition. Renowned for his philosophy of "Organic Architecture," Wright advocated for a harmonious integration of architecture and nature, as a response to the dehumanizing impact of functionalist architecture of the time. The mesmerizing geometric forms and warm indirect lighting of the TALIESIN light fixtures series stir one’s senses and evoke a sense of joy and happiness that is often lost in our contemporary world.  

This TALIESIN series represents original Frank Lloyd Wright masterpieces. Manufactured in collaboration with Japanese craftsmen, we are the only authorized brand in the world to receive permission from the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation to reissue the series.

Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) is one of the most legendary figures in American architecture of the twentieth century. He designed over 1,000 structures in his seventy-year career and the UNESCO World Heritage designated his Fallingwater, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Unity Temple and more.
