Stefano Boeri Architetti designs lasospesa, a table lamp for FontanaArte, on display at the Salone del Mobile 2019 at the showroom of FontanaArte.
“Lasospesa is a symmetrical table lamp, born from the elementary principle of the incorporation of two cylinders: a cylinder of primary light suspended in a cylinder of diffused light. A glass cylinder without a base and without a cover within a glass cylinder without a base and without a cover. A no-lamp with multiple uses and iridescent luminosity, very simple and classic, powered by cable or battery, the suspended lamp seems to have always been there, where you placed it “. Stefano Boeri.
Lasospesa is made up of two concentric pyrex glass elements with a circular section. The external cylinder has a 10 cm diameter and an height of 30 cm, while the internal “suspended” lighting element has a 6 cm diameter and 22 cm height. The lighting component, comprehensive of IED boards and cables, is obviously embedded in the internal cylinder. This latter is closed, both in its upper and lower side, by two elements of frosted nickel that serve as heat sinks, and that are kept together by a pin that contains and hides the power cable that is connected with the IED board on the upper part of the lamp.
The lamp is produced in four versions: transparent both plain and striped, sandblasted, copper and smoked varnished. Every different version enriches the range of possible effects that you can obtain according to the lamp you choose to have. You can go from a suffused effect with warm tones for the colored versions to a brighter and clearer effect for the transparent and etched version.
