    Aqua is a perfect combination of artistic values and quality.Our atelier creates art pieces that function as design objects. Our lights are beautifully made and detailed, using the most advanced and sustainable lighting technology. Our upholstery is hand worked and finished, like a haute couture garment.

    The idea of Aqua started in 1991 during Ayalas pregnancy with our first daughter. The notion that all life starts in water lead Ayala to create the first collection of functional art pieces, which developed into Ayalas own visual language and positioned her as a pioneer of organic design.

    Ayala and I built Aqua under one roof because we wanted to direct all elements of creativity and production. We started the atelier in 1994 working at our home, which also functioned as Ayalas artist studio and my photography studio. To this day, we are now located in a 4500 sqare meter former bakery, we design, develop, produce and distribute from one location and are loyal to all the same values. All pieces are handmade to order by skilled artisans who craft each piece individually, with utmost care and respect for our heritage.

    With increasing demand for bespoke design and with an extended network of architects and interior designers, Aqua is committed to design and produce site specific lighting installations of any scale.

    Today Aqua continues to explore this sensibility and expression with a group of talented designers and keeps introducing new materials, techniques and forms. While Ayala continues to design for the atelier, she focuses on research and creates one-off and limited edition pieces under her own name.

    It is a joy to see Aqua being a part of many amazing commercial and residential projects all over the world and we commit to pursuing our goal to respect our heritage and create the best products.

    Silk LightingThe monumental scale of lighting sculptures combined with the exquisite use of silk fabric has become Aqua Creations trademark over the years. The result is sophisticated tailored lamps that reveal a new dimension in lighting.All lampshades in the Silk Lighting Collections are made of hand dyed, treated and crushed silk that is resistant to mold and fire. The silk is sculpted over a metal structure.

    As our fabrics are hand dyed, hues may vary slightly.

    When lit, the silk colors change with use of warm or cool white bulbs. In order to create a contemporary atmosphere we use warm white, 3000 Kelvin (equivalent to OSRAM 830) bulbs for the colors, Cream, Red, Flame, Rust, Orange and Curry.Cool white, 4000 Kelvin (equivalent to OSRAM 840) bulbs, are recommended for the colors, Redwood, Sand, Shell, Gold, Coal, Dark, Stone, Silver, Smoke and Grass.

    Since 2005 Aqua Creations has pioneered the implementation of electronic ballasts with Digital Addressable Lighting Interface (DALI). DALI ballasts have a full dimming range from 1 to 100% allowing it to match the diverse requirements of both commercial and residential projects.

    Aqua Creations offers several options of DALI ballasts control:1. Touch dim and standard dimming control2. Cutting edge, remote battery free wireless control3. Computerized control

    Aqua Creations successfully employs the above technologies in all regions providing solutions compatible with local lighting industry standards.

    Dimming OptionsType A: Leading edge phase Floor/Wall dimmer controls CFL screw-in dimmable bulbs or plug-in CFL bulbs with ECG. Floor dimmer is included with any portable lighting fixture. Wall dimmer is not included (purchased separately).

    Type C: Floor/Wall push-button (touch dim) controls plug-in CFL bulbs with ECG (DALI or DSI). Floor push-button is included with any portable lighting fixtures.

    Type E: Wireless remote control dimmer kit controls plug-in CFL bulbs with ECG (DALI or DSI). Wireless dimmer kit is included with each lighting fixture.

    Type F: Upon request, DALI rotary dimmer controls plug-in CFL bulbs with ECG. DALI rotary dimmer with power supply is included with each lighting fixture.

    Type J: 1-10 V dimmer controls plug-in CFL bulbs with ECG.

    Note: Computer controlled Light Management Systems may be used instead of dimming devices; in this case all compatibility issues should be negotiated with manufacturer and reflected in contract and/or order.

    Most of the lighting pieces function with more than one light bulb.Aqua Creations uses compact fluorescent bulbs (CFL) in its silk lighting designs. These bulbs create less heat than incandescent bulbs, are highly efficient and have a lifetime of 10,000 to 12,000 hours. Some lamps require Screw-in Self-Ballasted bulbs and some require plug-in bulbs with an electronic control gear (ECG).For optimal light diffusion use recommended bulbs only.

    Measurements are provided in centimeters and inches, with +/- 2% tolerance.

    Protective Silk CoatingSpecial commercial grade resin coating is available upon request. It is highly recommended for pieces intended for public installations or areas of humidity or smoke. This coating does not change the appearance of the silk, but strengthens the texture.

    Silk Care InstructionsFor optimal maintenance vacuum the silk frequently (make sure the vacuum cleaner is at low suction and use a clean attachment) and avoid direct sunlight or smoke. To remove stains use upholstery foam cleaner (as these vary from country to country, testing the product on a hidden spot first is recommended). In case of heavier dirt use a moist sponge and make sure to move it along the crushed line of the silk.Please do not clean coated lamps with water.Note that any good quality silk fibers weaken when exposed to sun and natural dyes may fade. Hence, avoid direct sunlight on the silk lights.

    Molecules Lighting Care InstructionsThe origami lampshades in this collection are made of the best quality origami paper that easily resists environmental influences and changes. We recommend regular dry dusting with a feather duster or a very soft (paint) brush in order to maintain the appearance and quality.

    Tokonoma Lighting Care InstructionsThe felt on these lamps is handmade of the finest merino wool and pure silk. We recommend regular dry dusting. The felt can also resist cleaning with a moist cloth or sponge.

    Upholstery Fabric Care InstructionsRegular cleaning is important in order to keep the upholstery looking its best and to prolong its life. Dust and dirt wear down the textile. We recommend regular vacuum cleaning and removing non-greasy stains using a moist cloth or sponge. Do not rub the upholstery fabric hard.
