Semjase Lamp by Sandro Santantonio

From Sandro Santantonio comes the Semjase floor lamp.

Technology, design and poetry are the guidelines that have taken to the planning of this floor lamp. With its big dimensions, it has been designed to serve as an elegant piece of furniture rather than an accessory.

From the designer:

At the end of the past century Semjase entered the human make-believe: a slim woman, with long hair adorning her face, dressed with a close-fitting and sinuous white dress. Her apparition, narrated as one of the first “contacts” of the alien world with the Earth, has been a peace contact.

Alien entity or Goddess, Semjase with her story, her characteristics and beauty, documented by pictures and portraits, has inspired the name of our lamp: a bit “extra”, a bit mythological, it offers a diffused light to the surrounding space, it protracts itself towards us in a graceful way and takes us into a new sensorial journey.
