Product family


Basic TWELVE is a line of concrete and wood modular magnetic lamps.
The design arises from considering the current way of living, where spaces at home and at work are often multifunctional, shared and where housing changes are frequent.
Hence the need for a dynamic lighting system meant for changing its shape in an easy way.
Basic TWELVE lamps, with their magnetic connections, are designed for this.
The magnets on each module have a two-fold purpose: they allow to connect two or more modules together or to attach them to any metal surface such as shelves or fridges. Additionally, once joined together, the modules can easily be rotated to direct light where one wishes.
The available types are two: table lamp or ceiling lamp.
The number of modules of each system can vary from one to five, resulting in the models Solo, Duo, Trio and Quintet, a reference to musical ensembles.
The material of each single module can be either wood or concrete, two materials with an opposite nature that are mutually complementary.
In this manner, a lamp can fit different styles, from the warm one, entirely made of wooden modules, to the industrial one, made of concrete elements, including all the nuances in between, obtained by mixing the two materials in different proportions.
In addition to the models listed in the catalogue, lamps with different woods, concrete colours and custom metal finishings can be provided upon request.
