Empatia Table Lamp 36
Empatia is marriage of art and science.
The hand-blown glass diffuser displays an ombré progression of opacity from transparent to frosted from base to top allowing efficient light diffusion without glare.
The white-painted bottom plate within the diffuser reflects light created by the internal LED “pipe”.
The die-cast aluminum base holds a touch dimmer.
Empatia creates a sincere emotion through the alchemy of its subtle transparencies crafted of delicate layers of Venetian glass and silk. It speaks soulfully through its light architecture and gradual diffusion.
Its accomplishment in adapting a traditional candle light design while emoting a modern appeal makes Empatia an object of desire and a fulfillment to dream interiors.
Uniquely crafted of handblown glass and innovative guided light technology, Empatia’s balance between surface and light makes it a pure craft object. Its transparency and opacity are wisely dosed to obtain a two-toned
glass that reflects light without glare or loss of light efficiency. The diffuser is partially blown by hand in crystal glass. While the crystal is still warm, the upper part of the bubble is immersed in incandescent white glass, allowing the white layer to cling to the transparent one. The process continues with an oven phase, when the glass is turned in
a wooden half-mold. The two-toned glass is then inflated in a cast iron mold that defines the right shape. While expanding, the border between crystal and white areas fades, creating the final unique shade effect.
