Design by Paolo Rizzatto and Francisco Gomez Paz, 2010.
Rationalization of materials and a visual lightness were the inspiration in creating Hope. It's polycarbonate petals are actually formed by Fresnel lenses that optimize reflection and refraction which enhance the luminous effect.
Hope renews the fascination of the crystal chandelier in a floor model. A series of thin polycarbonate Fresnel lenses, created using imprinted microprisms on polycarbonate film to achieve a dioptric effect similar to glass (without the limitations in terms of space, thickness and weight), multiply the light from the light source. The lenses are attached with injection-molded polycarbonate twigs to the polished stainless steel stem and base. In-line dimmer switch is located on the cord.
Material(s): Polished stainless steel, transparent polycarbonate
