CYLINDA – ANGELETTI & RUZZA
This year, the designer duo Angeletti & Ruzza are presenting Cylinda, a table lamp formed from two cylinders of different dimensions and thicknesses. The first, which is slimmer and taller, becomes the base supporting the second unit, a large, slender disc that forms the light-shade, with an LED light source shining beneath it.
In the words of the designers, the essential forms of this design aim: “To eliminate, not to add anything that is not absolutely necessary: this was the mantra guiding the design of the lamp; with its quiet presence, it succeeds in creating a positive atmosphere that can transform everyday routine into everyday poetics.”
Cylinda captures the attention with its strong, poetic presence, maintaining a minimalist sophistication with its clean outlines and use of geometric shapes, fully reflecting the Oluce DNA.
In the monochrome anthracite version, Cylinda confirms its refined quality, highlighting the elegance of the lines, while in the two-colour version, a brushed gold disc is supported on the anthracite base, a decorative touch that succeeds in discreetly embellishing the object.
EVA – FRANCESCA BORELLI
Francesca Borelli, born in 1993 in Rome, where she also completed her education, has designed a product for Oluce that originates from and builds on the intimate contact between light, shape and movement.
Eva is a metal table lamp that investigates opposites, hollow and solid, light and dark, taking them from theory into practice. The interaction between humans and objects takes on a fundamental significance, adding a playful and continually surprising element to the light.
The body of the object is a ball containing the LED light source; it is open on one side and stands on a slim cylindrical base. The inside of the ball is concealed by a surface that almost perfectly completes it, closing it like a sphere that recomposes itself, with the exception of a circle, a luminous light spiral that recalls the phenomenon of an eclipse.
As this circular surface moves towards the interior or exterior of the ball, it allows different amounts of light to pass through, creating intimate, suffuse atmospheres, and revealing glimpses of the fine gold leaf walls inside the Eva lamp with varying degrees of clarity. The design is available in two versions: white or black, timeless colours that recall the moon and the astronomical phenomena that conceal it.
ALBA and RECUERDO MARIANA PELLEGRINO SOTO
Recuerdo, the second design by Mariana Pellegrino Soto, is part of a round solid in transparent glass, with an elegant crystal matelassé or quilted effect, inside which the LED light source is protected by a frosted glass cylinder, creating plays of light and reflections inside the space. Recuerdo includes a single suspension lamp version and a table lamp, where the sphere is replaced by a chrome metal disc.
