Antonio Facco's MONDO Lamp
A simple gesture invites you to compose geometrical patterns. Italian designer Antonio Facco created Mondo, a pendant and floor lamp composed of a luminous opal glass globe with four movable and overlapping steel shades with optical patterns. The new design for Swedish company Oblure will be on show at Maison&Objet 2018.
“Now when we see the finished product it’s hard to understand that we struggled a lot to find a solution for changing the bulb.” Says Antonio Facco. Because of the construction with a horizontal movement there were no obvious way to reach the bulb, but the designer came out with the idea of making one solid shade and to hide a hole behind it.
Gothenberg-based lighting brand Oblure – the union between the words object and allure – collaborates with internationally renown designers and up-and-coming talents to create unique objects that intrigue and surprise the beholder.
