Cobra, carbon fiber, table lamp, wall lamp, led lighting, iconic design
The challenge was to create an iconic sign, with emotional value, using the Möbius strip. The use of carbon fiber is particularly suitable to express the formal movement. The choice of placing the light source in the base shows ironically the artistic value of the object, leaning on it as on a pedestal and star in generating the play of light and shadows.
It can be produced in a limited edition (with customizations), but it fits well also to serial production. The object has an international patent. With its simple and elegant design is suitable for private or public location, especially hotels.
