Hope. Designed by Luceplan.
The layering of the thin Fresnel lenses gives the effect of opalescent scales or of elaborate medieval armor. Available as a wall/ceiling or suspension lamp, Hope is “the fruit of a brilliant project,” conceived by Francisco Gomez Paz and Paolo Rizzatto. Their vision continues the innovative path forged by Luceplan’s three architect founders: Riccardo Sarfatti, Paolo Rizzatto, and Sandra Severi. Since 1978, Luceplan has introduced originative fixtures, including Titania, a kinetic chandelier.
Recently, one of the company’s imperatives has been to design energy-saving lighting, upscale products that use the newest efficient bulbs. Hope maintains the dreamlike splendor of older lamps while looking toward the future: “Incredibly light and easy to assemble, Hope represents the magic of traditional lamps, reinterpreting them with sophisticated technologies and contemporary materials.” A structure of polished stainless steel complements the translucent polycarbonate lenses, so that all of Hope twinkles like tinsel.
