a monthly round-up of the world's best interiors and design stories
Luca Nichetto designed the Loos lamps for Zero lighting including a pendant version, a floor version and a table version. The geometric and functional façades are full of windows typical of modernist buildings - found in their highest expression in the 20s and 30s - together with Scottish plaids, criss-crossed horizontal and vertical bands of different colours. These elements create geometric patterns which were the sources of inspiration behind the family of lamps.
Each type of lamp is composed of three caps in pressed felt with three different cut-out patterns. A play of solids and voids is generated through the geometry of the three caps that, once they are superimposed, create an effect of light and shadow that can be changed by simply rotating the caps or alternating them in the superimposition.
Finish: 2 or 3 shades in pressed felt. The light source is covered by an opal acrylic diffuser. The shades are turnable. Base in grey painted metal.
Connection for the pendent version: Terminal block 2x2,25 sq mm.
Connection for the floor and table version: 2.5 m transparent cable with switch and plug.
