Giopato & Coombes wanted to make the cube the leitmotif of their project. They studied its isometric projection, and used this as a starting point to play with the perceptions of the volumes themselves. The end product is a solid rhombic dodecahedron of Catalan and comprising twelve equal rhombi. From a flat figure recalling a solid they have created a solid that looks like a plane: the ASTRO wall lamp. The lamp has three transparent and sanded surfaces and the rest are opaque, making it look like a little jewel whose geometrics are underlined by the materials that form it: the metal part, which comes in white or black, and the transparent and sanded glass create a “prism” effect on the light. The technicalities of the project have been carefully studied, in order to achieve a perfect harmony between the physical volumes of the lamp and the light. The result is that the form creates a light that draws geometrical figures on the wall. When assembling, the direction of ASTRO can be chosen in order to exploit its full potential and make it meet your needs.
