Hi-tech vs hand made: Scales lamp is the synthesis


Scales, Steel lamp collection:

the design of this lamp combines the high production technique of photochemical etching to the final indeterminacy of the shape, obtained manually.

In this way, from a standardized industrial process , we arrive at an extreme personalization of forms , passing from the series to the particular.

The lamp is made of steel sheet, thickness of 2 tenths of a millimeter, obtained from a plate of 60 to 60 cm chemically cut. Each lamp has a different final shape because it is molded by hand. Shadows on the wall are a very interesting component. The supplied halogen bulb has a power of 60 watts.

The collection was exhibited in the prestigious setting of the Carrousel du Louvre in Paris during the Deco Shopping event. In Milan it was displayed during the XXI International Triennale. In Jordan, the collection was presented in Amman at an event created by Hyper-room.
