A table lamp with an undoubtedly programmatic name: in this design, we proceeded to eliminate the most characteristic of components for this type of lighting, namely the lamp base and the stem, instead resting an inverted molded glass cone directly onto a table surface. A further dematerialisation effect is determined by the transparency of the glass itself.
The lamp and electronics are held in a metal canopy within the glass cone, allowing it to appear as though it were suspended in mid-air. The deliberate reduction of these constituent elements brings with it a greater attention to details and finishes, in particular the rotary dimmer located at the top of the lamp, which is used at the same time for joining the metal and glass elements together. Rigorous yet poetic, Semplice acts as our first collaboration with Italy’s oldest lighting company.
