Product Description

"This lamp reaches the height of simplification with its reduction to a sheet of metal folded on itself. Indeed, the charm of this object derives from the simplicity and naturalness of its form, through a gesture that gains a compelling poetic flair. By way of contrast, the soft luminosity radiating from within emphasises the two rounded edges that, with their folds, stretch out to meet each other at the centre. When the lamp is switched off, the functional aspect is entirely subordinate to the elegantly sculptural aspect of the curved sheet. In this way the design brilliantly resolves what for many lighting devices, when switched off, is merely an anonymous if not cumbersome presence. Regarding the origins of this project, Sergio Gandini recalls the impromptu way in which they responded to the request for a wall lamp by cutting and folding a simple piece of cardboard in front of one of his waiting team members."

Taken from: Denti, M., Afra and Tobia Scarpa. Industrial Design between Compositional Rules and Production Technology. Graduation thesis in architecture, University of Florence, Faculty of Architecture, Department of Building Production Processes and Methods, academic year 1994/95

About Tobia Scarpa

The son of architect Carlo Scarpa, Tobia Scarpa was born and has spent his career in Italy. He collaborated with his wife, Afra, on designs for nearly every major international company such as Flos, Cassina, Knoll and B&B Italia. Together they developed a vocabulary for accessible luxury design based on expanding technology and a wide variety of materials. Scarpa was commissioned, along with Pier Castiglioni, to design the first models for the lighting company Flos started by Dino Gavina. The Scarpas also worked in commercial architecture and interior design, especially later in their career. Some of their best-known work was for the Benetton clothing company.
