designed by: Nick Sheridan

The Altus is a robust and masculine fixture that also carries an air of elegance and subtle
proportion. It has the mass and impact to anchor a space while still showing balance and
grace. It is always exciting to see how the solid wood trunk comes out; admiring the wood
grain all the way through. available at:

objective table
designed by: Jean Nouvel

The character of the object – a tube containing different sets of optics – recalls the lens of a still or movie
camera and its manipulation, with the three different segments housing three different light sources:a)
ambient light coming from the semiopal methacrylate segment, prismatic internal surface while the
external is completly smooth,b) a spotlight focused, from the first head, onto the reading matter or work
surface,c) light pointed upwards from the floodlight in the second head.Instead of leading the eye to
observe different distances in the way that happens with a telescope or a camera lens, the function of
the lamp is obviously to bring the light sources to bear on objects at different distances, illuminating
them properly by establishing the focal ratios best suited to each situation. available at:

colombo | 281
designed by: Joe Colombo 1962

oe Colombo's first project for Oluce, the only one worked on together with his brother Gianni. From then
on, the two Colombo brothers clearly separated their fields: Joe left art in which he had shown interesting
promise with "Nucleari", while Gianni no longer worked in design, becoming one of the leading exponents
of the kinetic, programmed movement. The 281 model, created in 1962, was immediately nicknamed
"Acrilica" due to its surprising conspicuousness and exception innovation of the significant curve made
from acrylic. Methacrylate, used for about a decade in the field of lighting, usually in thin sheets that
are cut or thermoformed, found a very particular use here: its thickness and curve meant that, thanks
to its conduction properties, the light from a fluorescent lamp contained within the painted steel base
moved through the transparent body, eventually lighting the head in an incredible way. Due to this
"magical movement", "281" is more a work of kinetic art than a lamp. In 1964, "Acrilica" won the gold
medal at the XIII Triennial in Milan. Marco Romanelli. available at:
