Urano Table Lamp, designed by Elisa Ossino, is a small sphere-like table light created by hollowing out a cube of Bianco Carrara marble shedding a soft and romantic light. The carving is done by a diamond drill to make a hollow for the light installation. Finally comes the “sanding” step which is done by hand.
Obj-03 is born from a sheet of paper, a gesture, a cut, and a fold. The cut, once folded, allows the sheet to stand on its own, without falling, and in turn serves as a screen to receive the light. The led stripe is hidden on the back and contained in a solid steel bar. The weight of this part is essential to give stability to the lamp. Thus, all the parts fulfill an indispensable function for the object. The idea was to design a lamp with the minimum possible elements and a single material, steel. The lamp is composed of a square of 18 gauge sheet metal and on its back, a solid machined steel bar that contains the led lighting. I decided to oxidize the entire lamp to make it matte so that the light reflection would be soft and diffused.

A mouth-blown opaline sphere rests on a solid brass bar, evoking a play of balance and stillness. The idea of a movement caught in a second of suspension is a recurring theme in Michael Anastassiades’ designs, which often trigger the imagination of the viewers, offering them a playful yet meditative moment of contemplation.
The Onyx Light is carved from a single block of onyx, carefully selected for its transparency and veins. There are about 20 pieces that come out of a single block, with each batch bearing similarities in terms of character and colour. Each Onyx Light series is a unique edition, created when we are lucky enough to find blocks of onyx that carry the necessary qualities.
