aplomb large suspension lamp
Aplomb Large is a new lamp made of concrete, but with a different shape and use from the original version. Apart from being larger in size, Aplomb Large is fitted with a built-in LED light source, placed into the body of the lamp, which casts a wide beam of light onto the surface underneath, unlike the original Aplomb version which instead stands out for its accent lighting. Aplomb is made by Italian experts through a craft-based process of concrete processing. The challenge at the heart of this project was to obtain slim thicknesses, light-weight shapes and a textured surface, still pleasant to touch. It was all achieved thanks to the painstaking care and profound knowledge of the raw material, which allowed the creation of a special mix, particularly fluid when poured into the cast. It is available in three colors - white, grey and brown - made with pigments added directly to the material blend, in order to answer different setting requirements.
Paolo Lucidi and Luca Pevere got together at well-known design offices in Milan. In 2002 they signed their first commissions together and, in 2006, establish Studio Lucidi & Pevere in Milan. These days, Studio Lucidi & Pevere is based in Udine and still undertakes industrial design work for internationally renowned companies, belonging to a large number of different sectors.
