Avia & Aria lamp by Zaha Hadid for SLAMP

April 12th, 2013 by retail design blog

Being presented during Euroluce during Salone del Mobile, ‘Aria’, the lamp designed by Zaha Hadid for SLAMP combines dramatic architectural features with the intrinsic weightlessness of the materials, creating a sculpture of light and technology that fascinates and enchants observers. 50 individual layers of cristalflex (a techno-polymer) work together to make ‘Aria’ seem as if is about to take flight, characterized by complex yet harmonic forms that embrace the light source in a veiled breath.

The large fixture is formed from a central structure capable of flooding the entire room with 360 degrees of ample illumination, thanks to six light sources and a spotlight directed downwards. The hanging sculpture combines the majesty of great architecture for day-to-day use – perfectly integrating large volumes with advanced lighting techniques and technology. Available in four different sizes, the piece is capable of adapting to any kind of interior environment: two smaller sizes, ideal for use at home and two larger versions for enhancing large-sized rooms.
