“From dawn to dusk the sky continually changes colour. As the sun is about to rise and set, the colour changes dramatically. Even during the day the colour goes through shades of blue, white and grey giving an impression of the universe being in continual activity. This aesthetic idea of “Cielo” (the sky in Italian) stimulated Kazuhiro Yamanaka to design this new lamp”. A lenticular plastic sheet (h3d© system print) is used to explore the varying hues on the lampshade surface, which changes colour according to the angle at which you look at it. Cielo is available in both pendant and floor lamp versions. The floor lamp has a sloping stand, which creates the impression that the lamp itself is floating suspended in the air. The lampshade in lenticular material creates transition effects and the available colourscompositions are from blue (Pantone 072) to white and from dark grey (Pantone 426) to white. The floor lamp version of Cielo requires a 205w energy-saving halogen bulb with e27 socket (250w with e26 socket for 110v). The pendant versions require a 150w energy–saving halogen bulb with e27 socket (150w with e26 socket for 110v).
