Presented for the first time at Euroluce, the lamps Aibu and Necky by Axo Light are now going into production. We are glad to present here the peculiarities of these two new lamps.
Aibu, designed by Giovanni Barbato
A table lamp in blown glass with LED light source
Aibu, “caress” in Japanese, is a table lamp in triplex blown glass (clear|white|clear) formed of two overlapping semi-spheres that create the illusion of gently sliding over one another. The slight movement of the two semi-spheres gives this light a retro charm.
Hand-crafted using traditional Venetian techniques
With its precious materials and refined details, Aibu has a high craft content. The glass is blown, cut and glued entirely by hand by Venetian craftsmen.
Precious and timeless materials, avant-garde technology
Aibu i s made from blown glass with a metal base coated in matt RAL9003 white. It fits a LED light source with a G9 fitting and comes with an elegant and captivating packaging with an ad-hoc design.
Necky, designed by Diagora Design
Ceiling/wall light in removable and washable elasticised fabric
During the mid nineteenth century, crystallographer Louis Albert Necker studied the effects of optical illusions and created the celebrated cube that now bears his name. The Necky light is inspired by the Necker cube, a ceiling/wall light in the shape of a cube with only three of the six sides visible. Made from white elasticised fabric that covers a structure formed of a metal rod painted white, the light is designed to be easily removable and washable.
Single or group installations for unparalleled lighting effects
Necky can be used individually but its true value becomes clear when used as part of a modular group to create hexagonal light patterns with high visual appeal. The light is filtered by the technical fabric and softly caresses the space.
There are many light sources to choose from: LED, fluorescent or halogen sources with screw fitting or fluorescent source with dedicated fitting.
