La Casa Encendida is a social and cultural centre located in one of the most fashionable neighborhoods of Madrid. It is an open and dynamic space, where some of the most contemporary artistic expressions coexist with educational activities, reflection and debate.
This collection of lighting is inspired by the codification and exploration of space through geometric elements. There are three different models, which, when combined create different codes that bathe the space with continuously light. The lamps are positioned in such a way that they explore the X, Y and Z axes. We can consider them as rhythms that dynamize the space with its various volumes, thus enhancing the space sensation of the viewer. In the same vein, the lamps are designed to recover a low-end industrial material and give it a new sense and presence. They are made of folded and lacquered microperforated sheets and use linear tubes of LED tube.
These lamps complete the project of the Entreplanta where space is intersected with furniture. This space is an area which was rejuvenated by providing large tables and benches with the intention of being used as a meeting place and work area for locals.
