Suspension lamp based on minimalist geometry: the project focuses on technology and on the quality of light on the clear emitting surface. An ultra-light rounded aluminum rim hosts to a LED strip injecting light into a clear PMMA surface, processed for the purpose. It is a non-intrusive element that, utterly absent and immaterial, becomes perceptible when switched on, thanks to the light outlining its central emitting surface. Almost by magic, the inside changes from clear to full of light, absence turns into a perfect diffusing emitting surface. Direct and indirect emission produces an embracing and uniform light.
