“This collection represents a kind of rebirth for me, in the sense that it has felt like we have found a new way of creating and interpreting light.
The ideas for these new lamps arrived as if by grace, after a long period of gestation. This period was necessary to be able to re-evaluate and appreciate more deeply the “primordial” aspect of my need to make lamps. On one hand, I would like simply to make beautiful light.
On the other, I need to communicate using light, narrating stories and creating metaphors.
I have done all this focusing on simplicity, but at the same time making use of creativity and a spirit of invention, which have always been a big part of my work and made it unique”.

A “pop” project.
Besides being a perfect lighting tool, it is also a “ready-made” or conceptual reinterpretation.
Thanks to the support of a large lever clamp of the type you might find in a workshop, the light source has been positioned far from where the lamp is attached to the table, utilising three adjustable arms.
Morsetto is a table lamp, but at the same time, it is also a very lightweight, suspended light.
It’s a lamp that appears to be in flight, like a bird in the forest.
Morsetto can be positioned, balanced and turned, but overall it produces a beautiful light on the table.

It’s a new kind of suspension lamp with a rechargeable battery.
The light source is applied magnetically to a metal dish that hangs from the ceiling using a very thin steel wire. The effect is delicately elegant.
QuiQuoQua allows light to be taken where it is needed, without the limitation of electric wires.
QuiQuoQua: the light where you want it.

This is an evolution of our Tetatet lamp.
We have put into use a rechargeable Lithium battery that allows the support column of the lamp to be practically “invisible”.
The head of the lamp, where the battery is located, is lightweight and appears to be floating in air.
The effect is innovative and magical. The support column is made of glass.
The Tetatet Flûte lamp fits perfectly with an elegant “mis en place”, bestowing beauty and spontaneity to any table.

Hashi is a floor lamp conceived to provide direct light in a simple and flexible manner.
Its principle component is the pivot point between two “chopsticks” (Hashi) that serve as light sources. The two sticks can be positioned in different ways, creating a strong, graphic effect in space.
Particular care has been given to the proportions. The sticks always appear lightweight and balanced.

“Daughter of the morning”. Tomoko is the result of lengthy research in the field of light and well-being and the benefits of natural light reproduced artificially.
A ray of light appears to shine into a room from a window, resting casually on the surface of a lamp and lighting the surrounding area. lt is possible to re-create sunlight from different times of the day by turning a knob.
The light produced can go from cold light (5000K), similar to that generated by the sun at midday, to warm light (2000K), similar to that at down. The someknob con be used both to change the light temperature and to dim the light.

The Infinito and Flash projects are all part of a system.
It’s a system that breaks down the actual lamp and light source,
turning it into something else, leaving only a trace, a line and then not even that.
It becomes, finally, a concept: light only.
This project pays homage to the art of Lucio Fontana and his spatial concepts.
A thin strip of metal “cuts” the space to produce indirect light and direct light.
The graphic force of this system is surprising.
It can be integrated into space, but at the same time it becomes part of that space.

Infinito is a spatial concept; it is continuous light.
A thin strip made of stainless steel a mere 18 mm in width “cuts” the space to produce indirect light.
It is possible to adapt Infinito to various situations, stretching it from wall to wall or ceiling to floor, according to one’s taste or needs. It comes in strips up to 12 m in length.
Infinito: essence and absence.

Design Davide Groppi, 2017
It is Infinito turned around, creating direct light that flows downward from the light source.
The stainless steel strip, 9 mm in width, can be stretched up to 12 m in length.
Flash* is the ideal solution for direct illumination of spaces with very high ceilings.

*Flash pays homage to the famous comic book superhero of the same name who can run seven times the speed of light.
