Entry DescriptionThe formal concept of the Tile, used on the surface of this lamp´s metallic structure,derives from a three-dimensional interpretation of an early 20th century tile design, found on the facade of an old Lisbon building.The bidimentionality of the original Tile consists in a drawing of two circles, with two shades of blue in a white backgroud, and is now the focus of a tridimentional interpretation that conveys a sculptural aspect to the new Tile which, in conjunction with the light source brings new shape values to the Lamp.This tridimentional interpretation is built in Tile and Cork materials, so as to take advantage of the combination of both light source and acoustic properties of the Cork surfaces.The lamp is presented in both a vertical and an horizontal extruded aluminum body, coated on both sides with tile or cork modules.In its vertical position, the aluminum profile is fixed to a 31cm diameter stainless steel circular base, with under sliders to allow a perfect movement.The light source consists of a Led Modular Technology with an opaline polycarbonate diffuser, fixed to the main body with powerfull magnets while the light flux variation is controled by digital approach.
