Plera is a new suspension lamp designed by DZstudio of Enrico Zanolla and Andrea Di FIlippo. Pleara means funnel in Friulan, the language spoken in northeastern Italy.
The idea was to realize a small suspension lamp which could express minimalism but with the soft touch of the wood in opposition to the cold touch of porcelain. The inversion of a simple shape like that one of a funnel creates a really simple lamp, where the wood gives the last friendly touch in contrast to the elegant and classic appearance of the porcelain.
