Lys - 334Angeletti e Ruzza, 2013
Of all the types of lighting, the “floor lamp” is today perhaps the one in greatest difficulty. The undoubted revival of the central lighting point on the ceiling and the consequent proliferation of chandeliers has reduced it to a marginal role compared to the glories of the ’60s and ’70s. Daniele Ruzza and Silvana Angeletti seem to find their starting point in this reflection and, in designing Lys, make specific reference to that extraordinary moment of Italian lighting design. The moment of the great masters: Joe Colombo, the Castiglioni brothers, Gino Sarfatti. That is how Lys rejects the excess materials and colours of contemporary floor lamps, sometimes sculptures, sometimes monsters, to return to a sophisticated, contained elegance. Slender on a tripod, equipped with a trumpet-shaped head, it characterises the space without getting in the way. Also available in the traditional halogen version, it is enhanced by a brand new LED version: finally, the new sources, with dimmable mains voltage, are also used on the floor lamps, with flawless light output and extraordinary durability. The two versions are distinguished by a methacrylate disc which, resting on top in the LED model, draws a circle of light, a small halo.
The previous product also comes in the suspended Lys version, which on one hand takes advantage of the great elegance of the design of the head, and on the other the considerable lighting power in relation to the contained dimensions in terms of volume.
