The LED lamp in ‘Milano Study’ is directed to its wooden surface giving it a warm, atmospheric glow. The young designers of Politecnico di Milano, Alessandro Grasso, Alexandra Lunardi, Sara Flamigni and Emanuele Colzani say that their work was inspired by the organic, natural shapes – such as leaves, flowers, drops of water. That’s why the material used is bent and molded thin ash veneer, it’s a material found in nature yet very flexible. The thickness of the veneer has to be very precise in order to reach the right kind of radius. The solid wood base is also made of ash. The lamp combines minimalist design with a natural material is a very cool and unexpected way.
