With his fourth light for Venice-based lighting manufacturer Lodes, multidisciplinary designer Luca Nichetto explored the concept of a traditional floor lamp and flipped it on its head.
Meaning “quaver” or “eighth” in Italian, Croma was inspired by a musical note and, instead of opening at the top, positions its flare-out at the base, creating a new dialogue between form and function.
Its slender frame is discreet yet striking and belies the powerful output of illumination, which is controlled by an integrate ring halfway up its stem rather than by a standard on/off switch. The LED modules washes light upwards across the wall and ceiling and features a dim-to-warm function.
Suitable for use in both private and public spaces, the elegant lamp is made from metal and available in four colourways – two metallic ombre effects (on that fades from green to black, the other from bronze to nickel) and two solid matte (white and black, each of which has a textured finish).
