When you think of innovative,creative,one of a kind designs the first name that comes to mind is definitely Zaha Hadid and her parametric architecture and design. Her out of the box thinking and futuristic architectural objects have dazzled the entire world. And now, she yet again amazes us at the Euroluce lighting show at Milan Fairgrounds with two special models of lighting equipment.
Their names: Aria and Avia.Two monochrome pendant lamps created for Italian brand Slamp presented today at the Euroluce lighting exhibition. With shapes resembling an organic, living creature, the two float in an asymmetric fluid motion.
The first one, the Aria lamp provides light trough out a center of six light sources facing outwards and one positioned downward,all reflected through 50 sheets of black translucent plastic. The generated effect is one of a chandelier from ancient castles. Avia is conceived on the same main idea, the only difference being the opaque white or black plastic sheets.This specific model was created in two different sizes for residential use or in lighting installations.Both of them can easily become the centerpieces in any luxurious interior design, with contemporary,futuristic aspect.
Slamp’s stand will be located at A15-B12, Hall 9.
Aria by Zaha Hadid
Aria is a lamp designed by Zaha Hadid which combines dramatic architectural features with the intrinsic weightlessness of the materials, creating a sculpture of light and technology that fascinates and enchants observers.
The 50 individual layers of Cristalflex (a techno-polymer patented by Slamp) work together to make Aria seem as if is about to take flight, characterized by complex yet harmonic forms that embrace the light source in a veiled breath.
The large lamp is formed of a central structure capable of flooding the entire room with light, thanks to 6 light sources and a spotlight directed downwards.
With an 90 cm diameter and 130 cm high, Aria enhances any space, rendering it luxurious without losing any of its contemporary style.
The elegant black veiled finish lends a touch of mystery and seduction.
Avia by Zaha Hadid
Avia combines the majesty of great architecture with a lamp for day-to-day use, perfectly integrating large volumes with advanced lighting techniques and technology.
To give shape to such an ambitious project the designer used 52 different layers of Opalflex, a techno-polymer patented by Slamp, creating an effect of fluidity, dynamism and harmony resulting in a perfect architectural form that gently embraces the light source.
Avia captures the gaze of anyone who draws near, offering constantly changing perspectives and reflections, transforming itself from a simple light source into a genuine sculpture to be admired, making any space more suggestive.
The central structure is capable of providing 360 degrees light, thanks to its numerous light sources and a downwards-facing spotlight.
The lamp is available in 4 different sizes, making it capable of adapting to any kind of space: two smaller sizes, ideal for use at home and two larger versions for enhancing large-sized spaces. Two colour tones are available: the uncontaminated purity of total white and the absolute elegance of total black.
