Exnovo Afillia SFE E7 Table lamp
Exnovo Afillia SFE E7 Table lamp.
A concept borrowed from botanical science to define its nature and reveal its intimate essence: this collection of lamps takes its name from Afillia, in nature a plant without leaves. Emptiness and fullness, strength and lightness: space and its paradoxes. Rarified materials - the vacuum crosses between them - to create compact auras; air and light as true 'building components' of the object. And further, beauty and rationality, tradition and innovation: the old story of materials used in combination with the innovative technology of sintering.
