A surprisingly straightforward table lamp, developed with profound care, Tua is inspired by the palm of the hand containing a light: a reassuring pose transformed into a single, shaped metal plane that becomes both the support and screen for the lamp. Its simplicity enhances the elegance with which every detail has been designed: the wide angle of its bend, the subtraction of material from one of the two sides and the treatment of the rounded corners. These are details that give a soft, overall continuity to the design and help enhance its friendly, discrete, relaxed nature.

The light source is hidden under the fold that has a fine slot to both reduce heat and add further aesthetic value. When the lamp is on, the light creates a pleasantly intimate glow, indirectly cast by reflection off its supporting surface.

Its bend is a single gesture that gives the object a three-dimensional aspect. The one-piece thick metal component enhances its physical value and resistance. A single colour – pure white – defines the volumes by contrast and reveals the character of a light whose discrete charm is suitable for any environment, from a reading light on a beside table to a spotlight on a worktable. Contemporary and seductive, Tua creates an intimate relationship with whoever chooses it, not only for its function, but because its design is solid and unmistakeable.
