The idea of the lamp Libra resides in the memory of the designer when, a few years ago, rummaging through an old family bookcase, he discovered the books of the early 20th century with a special graphic typical of those years. So Mr. Plazzogna thought it would be nice to revitalize those books, like actors, treating them with the attention that a sculpture deserves and making them live again with its own light.

The basic structure of the lamp, deliberately simple, camouflaged and hidden, allows the book, with its own emotions and fantasy, to be the only protagonist. Not a self-celebratory design object but a lamp that creates a light source.

Read a book make the imagination flies. This kind of feeling led the designer to think about a suspended object, which levitating in the air it produces a halo of light that plays with lights and shadows on the wall.

An easy game of cuts and folds performed on a metal sheet represents the backbone of the lamp. A small structure that remains in the background and does not bother the nightstand next to the bed.

The adjustable supporting fork, sliding along the cylinder, allows to accommodate a book, but also other items related to everyday life: a musical score, a tangle of branches, a play of textures or sheets of paper. The curved frosted glass diffuser keeps away the pages of the book from the heat source.
