“I wanted to create a functional product that was part sculpture, that was truly beautiful even with the lights off, that would allow beguiling combinations capable of creating a fantastic panorama of lights and shapes”. Karim Rashid

Fluid, liquid, emphatic, glamorous.

This collection that recalls a row of trumpets lined like bunting stems from Karim Rashid's brilliant imagination. Organic shapes that create a fantastic panorama of lights and shapes.

Nafir touches upon the sculptural theme: available stand-alone or in groups of threes (a textured and flowing osmosis of 3 lampshades) and illuminated by LED technology, it is just as enchanting with the lights off.

The designer sketched them while thinking of light as a complement to music, imagining a fluid surface pulled upwards in several places: the three-dimensional handling of the surface, little by little, took shape and began its transformation into an object that resembles a trumpet.
Nafir's fluid and dynamic shape is intended to be the expression of light itself, as if the casing wanted to become/appear an integral part of what it contains, while also expressing the idea that light, like music, is pure emotion. Its name is also a tribute to music: Indeed, the term Nafir is used to indicate a small North African trumpet, without pistons, used to obtain especially acute sounds.

Nafir is designed to allow the creation and customisation of an endless number of compositions suitable both for residential and contract use. A triumph of vitality and an unmistakable sign for a fabulous collection of lamps that remains the crux of the purest refinement.

Nafir is made of white injection moulded plastic and is available in three different colours: chrome exterior/white interior, white exterior/gold interior and white exterior/white interior. The canopies are made of the same material as the lamp and with the same colours and finishes.

The light source is GU10 LED which guarantees excellent performance levels in terms of energy savings and is readily available in shops.
