Planet is the end result of a wish to create a suspension lamp with a fabric lampshade that is able to maintain its own form without a frame or internal structural elements. The lamp’s technology comes from a study into the “intelligent” clothing used by astronauts, commissioned by NASA and carried out by Dainese in collaboration with Boston’s MIT. The construction process is based on the use of a high technology fabric – borrowed from the sailing world – which thanks to its consistency and particular style of stitching, gives the lamp an excellent structural rigidity. The diffuser, which is organic, slightly irregular and spherical in shape, is created from the joining of three hand-cut and sewn pieces of fabric. The outcome is a light and original image which seems to disobey the laws of gravity. The external surface is crisscrossed by a particular stitched motif, created using a large diameter thread which acts as both a decorative and reinforcing element. The thread colour (white or red) is the only aesthetic difference between the two versions of the lamp. Supplied with either fluorescent or halogen light source, Planet is available in 55cm or 80cm diameter. It can be installed individually, or in multiples, and is suitable for a wide variety of environments, whether residential or corporate.
