Designed by Emmanuel Babled, Vitro comes from the idea to create a lamp enhancing the characteristics and brilliance ofobjects made from glass.This initial idea led to a new technological challenge: to use the most evolved plastic polymers today on the market to producea light capable of conveying the same “magic” as cut glass, a material that makes objects extremely beautiful and intriguingregardless of their function.Designers and architects thus created a multipurpose lamp, with super-resistant product architecture having all the requisitesof strength and comfort that are not possible with glass.Vitro is made from three injection-molded pieces in self-supporting, self-extinguishing technopolymers. The body enablesvery quick installation to whatever support the user chooses. The internal part is molded in a material with a very high lightdiffusion coefficient to guarantee visual comfort and recreate the shape and colour of a traditional halogen light source. Inboth the super-clear and metallic versions, the lens copies and enhances the cut glass effect.The LED technology works on direct mains voltage and can be regulated.It can be wall or ceiling mounted. Suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.
