Design Zaha Hadid, 2010
Injection-molded foam polyurethane, steel
Made in Italy by Artemide
Zaha Hadid Architects exploration and research into systems of growth in the natural world have informed the distinct formal language of the Genesy lamp for Artemide. As in the organic development of trees, a sweeping canopy emerges through an extensive interconnected supporting network at the base. The primary components of this organic analogy are transformed from abstract diagrams into Genesy's fluid design. The lamp's structure increases in complexity as it rises from the floor. Like a growing organism, the central support sprouts branches that adopt a greater radial geometry to enhance the dynamic tensional forces of the structure. The Genesy lamp epitomizes the symbiosis between the sensual fluidity of the natural world and the exacting tolerances made possible by state-of-the-art manufacturing technologies.
Genesy floor lamp offers adjustable direct diffused halogen & LED lighting. The structure is in hydroformed metal, anti-dazzle louvre in thermoplastic material. A joint along the vertical lamp developement allows a 350º rotation. Touch dimmers on stem.
76.75" h | 48" d | includes 1x200W halogen & 1x5W LED array
