Entry DescriptionPIOLA started from the concept of a luminous diaphragm.
Like a refined curtain with an architectural appearance, PIOLA shows all its illuminating and decorative authority.
The perfect expression of experience and design and material specialization, it interprets glass and light in a new way, in a meeting between latest generation technology and glass art.
It appears as a mix of glass and metal composed of refined cast glass bars, enriched with a texture of micro bubbles, crossed by thin light gold metal rods.
The structure is equipped with supports, at alternating heights, on which the glass bars are assembled and from which two internal LEDs create a light beam that passes through the glassy mass, enhancing the bubbles, with a very suggestive, almost oxygenating effect.
Piola is an unconventional illuminating work, it is an unprecedented way of interpreting light that creates a luminous mood in the environment.
Piola is also a green grill which is equipped with glass containers in which small plants in hydroponic culture can be housed. In this way it offers itself as an eco-friendly support in any environment.
This system allows modularity in width and height, suggesting an ideal location in the center of a space.
