Lens F46
From a whimsical concept by Lucie Koldova, Lens is a new massive suspension that can occur in different sizes, colors, and styles. The name of this product comes directly from its concept: each metallic disc lets the LED source funnel the light to the center similarly to a lens and releases the illumination to the ceiling by reflection, while the decorative pattern creates unexpected effects under the lamp. The suspension can be customized with different types of finishes to meet every design needs thanks to the versatility of the product family. The collection includes two types of suspension: the mono-lens (Ø 23 3/4’’- 35 2/5’’) and three-lens option (Ø41 3/4’’ – 63 2/5’’). The standard colors and finishes are Satin-finish burnished, Rust, Bronze, but the Multicolor and Custom RAL options are also available. Up to 25 production steps are needed to create the elements of Lens: the top light diffuser has a unique custom shape embedding the cables and it is created through a sand casting process of the aluminum. The various Lens options are created through a spun metal process: the craftsmen models the iron sheet until it reaches the desired diameter and thickness. Each lens undergoes a pressing step, where the metal is bent and forged to the needed concavity. A 3D laser cuts each disc to give the characteristic holes pattern filtering the light to the floor. At the end, an oxidation process is inducted by flame and it is followed by brushing, sponging, polishing and sanding.
