Sohum is the name of sculptural lighting systems whose geometric shapes represent elements from the plant world. The systems combine brass elements , led lighting and 3D printed parts that have various functions and forms.
Sohum was created within the Mifal Hapayis Designer’s Accelerator and was first exhibited at the 11th Fresh Paint art fair. It was made possible by the generous support of Mifal Hapayis and Mafil, the leading 3D solutions provider in Israel.

Words By Michal:
"Design and creation are an integral part of my daily life. The techniques I work with connecting to the essence of my work - a meeting between poles. Warmth and cold, old and new, organic and geometric.
My inspiration for creation comes from nature - In its beauty and wisdom of form and function. Fascinating and hypnotizing in its repetitive and variable structures, expressing motion and vitality."
