Coffee tables, lamps or stools with light? A new family of luminous objects is born, to serve a wide variety of needs and to revolutionize the traditional ways of using domestic light.

Zio, Zia and Nipotino are table and floor lamps in injection-moulded white polycarbonate. These new “support lamps” take a fluorescent bulb housed underneath the top. This creates an indirect light and produces a graphic play of visually restful effects.

Of the three members of this family, Zia is the lamp best fitted to support “substantial” loads. It can in fact safely bear the weight of a person, even though it is not designed as a seat.

The dimensions of the Zio are designed to allow the lamp to be placed with ease on a desk without taking up too much room. Its top can in fact comfortably accommodate a sheet of typing paper and the sort of documents normally associated with a workstation.

The Nipotino also can be used in innumerable different ways: from its ideal placement next to the computer keyboard, to its function as a discreet luminous presence.
