I desired to realize a lamp able to generate simultaneously a direct, diffuse and reflected light on a very large area. I wanted it to be a simple object, discreet and 'lightweight', composed of a few elements, only those necessary for its operation.
Coassiale (Coaxial) is a lamp essentially consisting of two spot led that project, from above and from below, on a reflective disc. This disc can be placed at different heights and generates different light effects. The two LEDs with twelve degrees of opening are housed inside two cylinders lamp holder of black colour: one hanged on ceiling, which also contains the power supply, and the other suspended by gravity which acts as a counterweight. Between the two metal tubes are stretched two thin cables on which is hanged the circular opal methacrylate plate with screw terminals that allow its movement along the vertical. The light changes and takes its shape according to the position and the distance of the reflective item from the point sources. The device makes possible infinite lighting geometries. The light can define a space, always different, without occupying it.
Moreover, the device, consisting of separate elements, allows a minimum space in the packaging and a quick assembling.
The product is part of the exhibition display "Collection SaloneSatellite 20 years," which will be presented to the public during the Salone del Mobile 2017 in Milan.
