Stupa was first launched by innermost at Milan’s Euroluce earlier this year. Now they are ready to introduce a new colour — white — into the ambient range of pendant lights. Cast from resin, the individual pieces that make up Stupa are joined and hand finished individually on a lathe, then polished with beeswax. This combination of a mass production process with a high value hand skilled element makes for wonderful and interesting lighting; in this instance, the result is a lamp that permeates an ambient glowing warmth while still providing a practical light level.
Designed by Freshwest, the form was inspired by temple architecture in Asia, particularly the stupas of Myanmar. Both Stupa white and yellow will be exhibiting at Maison et Objet in Paris in January 2016 alongside innermost’s latest lighting and furniture collections.
