Supernova Suspension Lamp

Ferruccio Laviani, 2000



Supernova is a newly-born star, but its name also means “very, really, extremely new,” just like this light whose volume is determined by two-dimensional surfaces. Supernova is a sphere, made up of seven different pairs of discs, attached in sequence onto a slightly curved suspended metal bar. The bulb in the middle acts as the incandescent nucleus of a planet. It is a full volume that is largely created by the empty spaces between the discs. The discs are made of aluminum, a material which gives this soft volume a high-tech feel and avoids glare, offering a diffused illuminance in all directions.
