The Capitone Lamp

The collaboration of Oriol Llahona with Alma Light is translated in a new collection of lamps called Capitone. The unmistakable classic capitone has been renewed, or rather `synthesised' providing to this collection an impressive appearance in all it’s versions: wall lamp, indirect light ceiling lamp or suspension.

The suspension and ceiling lamps are produced with a new material developed for Alma Light. A solid surface whose investigation has been a challenge for the company and the designer Oriol Llahona. We have been able to reach a translucence never reached before with and to deal with the material in a different way than till now, not only by thermoforming it.

In the case of the ceiling lamp, produced in 2 measures 80 and 110cm, we used the reflection of the material to create a pleasant indirect light through halogen lights placed in the base.

In the case of the suspension (diameter 80cm) the effect is still more spectacular when playing with the translucence of the material through an engraving with the pattern `capitone' elaborated in the inside of the shade. This way we achieve to get a screen has an aspect when the light is off that changes radically when this gets lighted.
