SLAMP Debuts Crystal-Inspired Light Fixtures by Adriano Rachele

Adriano Rachele found inspiration from one of those head-scratching phenomenons that happen in nature – those crystals that somehow grow out of rocks. He then translated that idea into contemporary lighting fixtures through dozens of facets that play with the light. The Drusa fixtures, designed for SLAMP, are made of Lentiflex® that’s finished with a Velvet print that creates a kaleidoscope effect whenever the light hits its many surfaces.

The fixtures are outfitted with a central light source that reaches each of the surfaces and angles differently, which in turn adds dynamic depth and texture. The crystal-like fixtures come in a suspension version and a ceiling/wall version.
