Floor lamp designed for De Castelli
Ribot lamp has been the opportunity to study some old metal processing techniques, which has became part of the company history. The diffusor is realized with an elliptical brass shape warped through “hammering”. A pre-industrial deforming technique that allows to create complex surfaces. It modifies a metal sheet through different hammers and supports made with several shapes and materials.
The double curves diffusor shape amplifies and directs the light produced by the LED light source making it soft, vibrant, warm and lightweight like a fluid surface. The diffusor is fixed to a balance structure, made of brass, supported by a slender tripod structure made of painted steal.
