Concept

Product available on requesting minimum quantities to be repeated in the sphere of a project.

The Sólida is a massive lamp whose sculptured base supports a ribbon shade. Cubic and rationalist, it is the result of the designers’ unique approach to form.

Two facing blocks of missanda wood are held together by small chips of wengué wood which maintain a gap between the two parts of the base, permitting the cord to pass through. The glowing cube of the ribbon shade perches atop this rectangle.

Despite the lamp’s size and angular appearance, the overall composition is extremely pleasing. The fine materials of which it is made - waxed wood and ribbon – give it a distinctive no-nonsense air. The materials are the same as those employed in the Básica lamp, but whereas the Básica gives an impression of lightness, the Sólida is much more substantial.

The warm light and materials contrast with the lamp’s strong unpretentious forms. The ribbon shade produces a nuanced light rich in chiaroscuro.

The Sólida lamp is inspired by an earlier version, called Tosca. The Tosca lamp is more sculptural and heavier as it is made of two rectangles of cast bronze.
