Chords for Pallucco, Pendant light, Italy

Chords emerged from considerations into the ways of transforming basic 2D geometric elements such as circles into complex objects through one single bend in the material. Two steel discs bent at a chord line form a lampshade. The lampshade displays subtle gradations of shade on its multifaceted surfaces and has a completely different appearance from each angle of vision. Chords was displayed at the ‘Elle Décor Young Talents Exhibition’at Superstudio+ during the Milan Design Week 2010 and was selected as ‘Best of Milan 2010’by Wallpaper Magazine.
