Inspired by the myth of Narcissus, the collection NARCISA, designed by Filippo Mambretti of Mambrò Design Studio for Selene Illuminazione and presented at Euroluce 2017, during Il Salone del Mobile at Milan.
Made in metal and glass Narcisa collection is characterized by a different use of the glass component, which is not limited to play an aesthetic and decorative role, but it becomes a structural element, totally integrated inside iconographic morphology of this model.
As Narcissus was mirrored in the waters of the lake admiring its beauty, in the same way the light – (produced by a COB LED 22W in small suspensions and 3 Led smd 12W in large suspension and table lamp) – it is reflected on the tempered glass plate element, cast by hand, reverberating, amplified, in the surrounding space.
The Narcisa collection consists in two suspensions and a table lamp, presented in the following colors: mat black, white and mother of pearl.
The table lamp is characterized by the original power cable made in fabric, that protrudes from the upper part of the diffuser. The lamp is dimmable.
Narcisa is one of the news presented by Selene Illuminazione during this beginning of 2017, with which the Company located in Marcon, close to Venice (Italy) integrates the stylistic renewal process that began last year during the Light & Build fair in Frankfurt.
The new collections are the result of the collaboration with new designers, as Filippo Mambretti, interpreting the light in different way than done in the past, but remaining firmly faithful to the Venetian glass tradition and the craftsmanship of metal working, which have always been the heart of Selene Illuminazione production.
