Catellani & Smith, the lamp Alchemie T between light and darkness

Written by Redazione |

01 October 2019

The antithesis between light and darkness, between Sun and Moon, is the fundamental source of inspiration for the new lamp  Alchemie T, designed by Giulia Archimede for Catellani & Smith: an exquisite sculpture composed of two discs, one made in brass, the other in alabaster – the latter used for the first time in a lamp by the company– both lying on a base made of Medea limestone.

With a light touch of the hand, the brass disc slides on the track-base, while the alabaster disc, which hides an LED light source in its frame, is fixed to the base and cannot be moved.

In addition, the sculptural lighting object Alchemie T lights up by pressing the brass button in the base and the interaction between light and shade reaches its peak the moment when the two discs overlap and almost mimic an eclipse; the movement of the discs, by changing both form and light intensity of the lamp to create a new ambience in the room, provides a unique user experience.

In conclusion, Alchemie T is able to create a connection between object and user, who is made to feel at ease and finds a connection with the space around him, in tune with the idea of innovative lighting signed by Catellani & Smith.
