Design by Alberto Meda, Riccardo Sarfatti and Paolo Rizzatto, 1992.
Metropoli, "revolutionary within". Simple, almost elementary. Elegant, positively impeccable. This technical step forward can also be seen in the ease of assembly and maintenance of this lamp. The wide rear hole allows rapid electrical connection during installation and convenient inspection of the system during operation. The diffuser closure system, of the "watch-case" type, facilitates bulb replacement and cleaning of the reflectors. This die-cast aluminum lamp with a diffuser made of prismatic glass or opal polycarbonate (available only for fluorescent version), provides a pleasant continuity of form between the interior and exterior of constructions.
ADA compliant when mounted on wall.
