Ray is the new collection of Lagranja Design lamps for Fabbian Illuminazione. It takes its cue from typically Mediterranean Persian blinds. “The image of soft light rebounding and filtering between the slats of a blind is the departure point of this project. Translating the rigid sequence of parallel slats into a sensual and dynamic shape did in fact turn out to be harder than expected. We did it by designing a module that repeats itself to produce a spiral-shaped object. Because of its special characteristics, polycarbonate was an almost immediate choice”, explains Gabriele Schiavon of Lagranja Design.
The light which “escapes” between the slats designs the shapes of the lamp. Quality is at the centre of the project. Ray creates a direct light on a table or worktop and an indirect diffused light in the rest of the room. The Ray lamp collection consists of a suspension lamp, a table lamp and a floor lamp, all made of white polycarbonate with powder-coated metal structure and supports in polycarbonate. These lamps feature a halogen bulb, the E27 coupling is also compatible with energy-saving bulbs. [Photos and information provided by Fabbian Illuminazione]
