Product description

A collection of suspension lamps with two different shapes. The opaque epoxy powder varnished steel spokes are attached to the upper part by two ABS/polycarbonate discs and to the lower part of the aluminium module that acts as the housing and heat sink for the two LED boards. The electric cable that powers the boards is invisible, because it is housed in one of the spokes. The suspension cable is in stainless steel and the electric cable is transparent. The ceiling rose and zinc-coated metal bracket has a shiny white batch dyed ABS covering.

Concept

The hanging lamp Spokes was inspired by images of antique oriental lanterns and less exotic aviaries. The designers observed the spokes of a bicycle wheel and this is what gave the lamp its name. The result is soft shapes and a lightweight lamp which holds the light allowing it to filter out into the room. Spokes expresses a feeling of light weight and motion. As if crossing a magical and geometrical mesh, the light filters out from the inside, projecting a kaleidoscope of blocks and voids.
