Benedetta Tagliabue of EMBT has unveiled her design of the ‘Dome lamp’ influenced by the architectural feature seen during the renaissance period. Presented by Barcelona lighting company Bover at ICFF during New York Design Week 2016, the product draws particular interest from renowned domes including the pantheon in Rome and Santa Maria del Fiore in Florence. Simultaneously, it references the geodesic work of Buckminster Fuller and the result sees Tagliabue’s ‘Dome’ lamp formed of more than 170 puzzled wood pieces. The intricate, interlocking structure of the body projects a play in light and shadow, with the LED bulb fixed above the wooden structure to enable a equal balance of illumination throughout the open and diffused portions.
