How does one design a light that translates the playfulness of an endlessly spiraling ribbon? The Piola collection is about imitating this fluidity of infinite movement, in search of a balance between the diffusion of light and the creation of shadows.
A central metal column holds more than 5 meters of spiraling, laminated band, enveloping, protecting, and sifting the light for beauty and comfort. Several different types of light coexist here: direct downward light, indirect reflected light, and a light that sneaks between the edges of the spiral, illuminating the fixture itself with a warm, homey glow.
The fixture’s spiraling form breaks with the monotony of cleanly ordered lines, offering a different face from every angle. At the same time, the central column provides a symmetry and solidity that supports and reinforces the visual movement of the screen. The Piola is available in four colors, with the structure and screen always in the same color to lend the fixture cohesion and unity. In this way, by contrast, the quality of the light takes center stage.
Mercer is a beautiful and elegant lamp. The fusion of different materials achieves a spectacular result due to its pure textile shade floating in a transparent blown glass structure.
The inner diffuser is available in natural cotton ribbons and in a more modern and minimalistic version, in pearl white.
Hazy Day is the outcome of a delicate study of light and how it diffuses, inspired by that time of day when the sun has not yet come up and the light of the sky is filtered through the haze. As a hanging lamp, the opal glass ball fades from a sandy matte to a shiny transparent finish at the small curvature that rounds out the lampshade. This detail breaks up the essential geometry of the sphere and harkens back to the technical procedure of glassblowing, the technique used to craft it.
From certain vantage points, the downward-shifted position of the bulb and the bottom curvature generate a provocative sense that there is a double source of light.
It comes in two diameters: 44 cm and 32 cm.
Maranga is the name of an imaginary fruit: exquisite, tempting, succulent. It reinterprets Scandinavian style in the essentiality of its shape and its rational use of lighting to generate a warm, comfortable atmosphere.
The shade is made up of 32 slice-like pieces which fit together to allow chinks of light to escape. This interplay of light and dark generates an effect which is rich in shades of light and prevents glare, while an opening at the bottom fitted with a diffuser gives out direct light downwards.
Exuberant even when turned off, the richness of the light issuing from the Discocó lamp provides direct downward illumination along with a dramatic play of lights and soft shadows.
Its detailed study of incident light and light that bounces off of both sides of the 35 disks provide the lamp with an appealing gradation of light nuances and depth. Further reflections dance off the chrome-covered sphere at the core, where the disks are anchored.
When the light is turned off, it retains its attractive presence, hinting at the expansion of energy that is fully expressed when it is turned on.
Two new tones, beige and grey, have been added to the existing color range, this time with a matte finish. A new 68 cm diameter is also available, making a total of five sizes to cover a host of applications.
