Oh Mei Ma

Oh Mei Ma
Ingo Maurer 1993
Six sheets of gilded paper. Plexiglass plumb bob. Oh mei ma is a special light object with six sails made of Japanese paper, which are gold-plated by hand using a special process. LED light shines downwards onto a reflector plate on the counterweight and is projected back onto the sails. The light reflected by the golden surfaces gives high rooms in particular a special glamour. An LED uplight colours the ceiling in a soft blue, enhancing the effect of the warm golden reflections. Oh mei ma has a length of up to 300 cm (special length 550 cm on request). The suspension length of 100 cm from the lighting element above the sails to the counterweight cannot be shortened. The sails are tensioned to the canopy with ropes, so the minimum length should not be less than 140 cm.
