Not just another pretty face. Nobi, as handy as it is decorative
If the Castiglioni team’s Scintilla system was ground breaking in the Seventies, two decades later Studio Metis forges ahead with Nobi, picking up where its predecessor left off.
A chrome-plated or brushed metal band encircles a circular diffuser made up of two pressed, tempered and sandblasted glass dishes. These elementary components conceal a complex system in which the two bowl-shaped glass discs are clipped together by a grip system and fastened to the metal frame by two pins, also holding the bulb. In this way the diffuser rotates freely, directing its intense halogen beam as required. Nobi also offers an indirect emission feature through a reflector fitted to one side of the diffuser for further effects like turning the light towards a wall or ceiling.
State-of-the-art Nobi comes in floor, wall and hanging versions, guaranteeing total practicality without losing any of its design appeal.
