The Siro is a semi-spherical table lamp designed by Marta Perla for OLUCE to imitate the oblique light from the cosmos. A disc at the front of the lamp releases LED light into a bright white bowl. Seen from the front, the Siro looks like two flat circles consisting of two two-dimensional elements. The contrast between the darker circle in front and the brighter circle illuminated in the background resembles celestial bodies meeting and creating distinct circular shadows in an eclipse.
Siro’s name derives from Sirius which means “glowing” in Greek and refers to the brightest star in the night sky, much like the white glowing interior of the lamp. Siro comes in two finishes – satin bronze and satin gold – and in two sizes.
