Mite, a floor lamp so innovative that it was awarded the Compasso d'Oro (Golden Compass) in 2001. A mix of fiberglass and carbon thread or Kevlar that acts as both decoration and a supporting structure at the same time. Technology previously used to produce fishing rods, oars and golf clubs was introduced to the lighting world for the first time. The circular shape at the bottom of the lamp extends upwards to where the light source is housed. Mite guarantees excellent lighting through an illusion of inner parabolas, projecting an intense and warm band of light towards the ceiling. The inner lighting enhances the decoration and the lamp's slender shape. Mite furnishes any room with an uncluttered presence and an elegant personality.
Provides diffused and indirect light. Diffuser achieved using an artisanal process that entails the application of a Kevlar thread for the yellow version and a carbon thread for the black version onto a glass fabric. Internal metal rod; the brushed steel upper parabola acts both to lock the diffuser onto the rod as well as a light reflector inside the diffuser. Nickel-plated steel base. The transparent cable is fitted with dimmer which can be used both to adjust the level of luminous intensity gradually or as the ON/OFF switch.
