Begun with the creation of the Equatore lamp, Gabriele and Oscar Buratti's path of research into the relationship between light and glass takes a new stage with Thea, their new collection also designed for FontanaArte. Defining the character of this line is the study aimed at investigating the magic of reflections which, thanks to the double cap, releases light on contact with curved glass surfaces.
Transverse and versatile
The inner dome, in white opaline glass, has the function of diffusing the light homogeneously; the second, transparent or coloured, collects the light and multiplies it inside. Available in table, floor, wall, ceiling and suspension versions, Thea is a transversal and versatile family of lamps, designed to be used both in domestic settings and in public and contract spaces such as hotels, restaurants and workplaces.
In the words of the two designers, it is "a product with a refined and timeless taste, characterised by shapes with a refined design that reinterpret classic canons and typical characters of our design, projecting them into a context of contemporary signs".
Sophisticated and discreet
The collection offers two versions of the double canopy - small and large - that rest on a slender stem base, fixed directly to the wall or hanging from the ceiling. An expression of refined and discreet aesthetics, Thea is made of transparent and smoked glass and, for the metal parts, of black nickel and polished copper.
