Design by Alessandra Matilde, 2003.
Ellepi Wall/Ceiling Light takes after its namesake, daughter of the sun, spreading rays of light in a 360° circle like the warm light of the sun. Ellepi features an aerial disc that keeps its distance from the wall by means of a central ring that creates the radiant effect of a glowing sun in the sky through a play of concentrated and refracted light in its center. Ellepi offers evenly diffused light throughout a space while also providing a reflected light source that highlights its mounted surface. Wall or ceiling lamp with satin white polycarbonate shade and white satin middle ring.
Material(s): Methacrylate, lacquered metal
Bulbs: 1 X 40W T5 2GX13 circline fluorescent lamp (not included)
