Miki Astori Zelight Lampfor driadeReality is undoubtedly one of the greatest sources of inspiration for designers. Designers are often people who "look at things with a different eye". This is especially true for the so-called "readymades", starting with Marcel Duchamp's "Pissoir".
Miki Astori tackles his new 2010 piece for Driade from this point of view. The Zelight lamp clearly reinterprets the type of lamps found on building sites: simple, solid and equipped with a long cable.
For some years this typology has been employed in lighting design to cater for a new way of living that increasingly involves moving from inside to outside, and taking the light with you. The rotational moulding production technique also gives this object a light and playful aptitude, distinguishing it from its counterparts.
