Wrapping the Light

How does one design a light that translates the playfulness of an endlessly spiraling ribbon? The Piola collection is about imitating this fluidity of infinite movement, in search of a balance between the diffusion of light and the creation of shadows.

A central metal column holds more than 5 meters of spiraling, laminated band, enveloping, protecting, and sifting the light for beauty and comfort. Several different types of light coexist here: direct downward light, indirect reflected light, and a light that sneaks between the edges of the spiral, illuminating the fixture itself with a warm, homey glow.
