ferra / lamp


Ferra is a ceiling lamp designed with the aim of creating it 100% customizable, living-like, unique as in shape as well as in technology and with the ability to alter the atmosphere of every interior space, from a regular living room to a hotel lobby.

These parameters are achieved by:
-the source of shade is ferrofluid, which is a special magnetic fluid. Its movement can be fully controlled by electromagnets which can be programmed by an app.
- the shape is created by an experimental way of vacuum thermoforming, that I've found during model making. During this process the final shape will always come out slightly different and unique.
