Plinio il Giovane Cone

Extra thin plywood lamp

The Cone lamp is part of a series that Mandalaki designed for Plinioltre, the eco-social project by Plinio il Giovane. This product is made in collaboration with Opera’s Penitentiary through the convicts’ skills. The Cone lamp is composed of a very thin white oak sheet. The position of the light source is based just on the volume’s balance over three different barycenters, which determines just as many positions. Each barycenter involves a light angulation in order to create dynamic compositions in the space. The light filters through the wood’s surface to create a warm  relaxing atmosphere.
