Sun-Light of Love
Like the sun with its molten, unfathomable contours, Sun–Light of Love has no precise beginning or end: 390 metal rays are grafted onto the central body of this suspension lamp, giving it an indefinite form which the gaze reassembles into the image of a sphere. Sun–Light of Love is a lamp of high decorative impact, but without ostentation. It has a double light source – a precise beam directed downward, and indirect, diffused lighting aimed upward – making it ideal to light a room, or to create a cosy atmosphere around a table. The two colour finishes set the tone: the gold brings out is precious spirit, while the white blends into more nuanced, minimalist contexts.
Sun - Light Of Love is a theatrical presence that adds vivid personality and charisma to any setting, making the lamp ideal in the home, but also in reception areas and high-image zones, such as the entrance to a large hotel, or in retail facilities where it becomes a “signal” that boosts recognition of otherwise neutral contexts.
