Design Joan Gaspar, 2018 Matte finish blown glass, lacquered aluminum Made in Spain by Marset
The Illuminated Lamp
At first glance, Vetra could be no more than a traditional, old-fashioned, blown-glass lamp, but turning it on yields a surprise. Joan Gaspar uses a completely closed glass diffuser as a reflector, and creatively places the light source outside -instead of inside- the shade. The Vetra gives off more light than one would expect, without glare. Much of the light is directed downward, and the rest is filtered toward the inside of the shade, subtly illuminating it. Like an echo multiplying the light, when it’s on, its entire outline is drawn out and seems to come alive.
This collection is offered in white and amber, a color that emphasizes even more its relationship with the light. A contrasting layout in which the lamp proper becomes more visible and its light – sheltered by these tones – warmer.
This collection was designed in table, suspension and floor models in different diameters (8”, 13” & 17” ). In the table and floor versions, the stem is divided into two unequal parts, a feature that breaks the symmetry, adds beauty and elegantly provides an outlet for the cable.
