Design Francesca Borelli, 2017
Francesca Borelli, born in 1993 in Rome, where she also completed her education, has designed a product for Oluce that originates from and builds on the intimate contact between light, shape and movement. Eva is a metal table lamp that investigates opposites, hollow and solid, light and dark, taking them from theory into practice. The interaction between humans and objects takes on a fundamental significance, adding a playful and continually surprising element to the light.
The body of the object is a ball containing the LED light source; it is open on one side and stands on a slim cylindrical base. The inside of the ball is concealed by a surface that almost perfectly completes it, closing it like a sphere that recomposes itself, with the exception of a circle, a luminous light spiral that recalls the phenomenon of an eclipse. As this circular surface moves towards the interior or exterior of the ball, it allows different amounts of light to pass through, creating intimate, suffuse atmospheres, and revealing glimpses of the fine gold leaf walls inside the Eva lamp with varying degrees of clarity.
The design is available in black version with gold interior, timeless colors that recall the moon and the astronomical phenomena that conceal it.
