(UK) – GamFratesi launches new light, Suspense, for Lightyears, celebrated at Republic of Fritz Hansen’s London showroom.
GamFratesi’s inspiration for the Suspence lamp series was to translate a movement into a physical shape. The shape of the lamp was created by pulling – an element movement involving physical force. Organic with a natural soft curve, Suspence is created through this tensile force that is visible at the top of the lamp where it forms a small tip.
Suspence pendant is designed with a monochromatic look, while the shade and cord are perceived as an uninterrupted whole. An infinity diffuser at the bottom of the lamp concentrates the light, prevents glare and contributes to creating an elegant optical illusion – hence the name infinity diffuser. A stronger light can be achieved by removing the diffuser.
The neutral choice of colours makes it easy to use in both professional as well as private interiors. The qualities of light and design make Suspence particularly suitable for dining and living rooms, kitchens and especially above tables.
With the floor version, Suspence Nomad, GamFratesi challenges conventional thinking in the area of lamp use by its design to be placed on a horizontal surface such as a floor, staircase or terrace. It carries an appeal to be moved from place to place, without a permanent residence, like a nomad. The lamp encourages casual use and is easily moved around by lifting the silicone handle at the top. Suspence Nomad is available with a red or grey plastic cord and handle. It has a natural place in the room – as a central part, on the stair or on the terrace on a cosy summer evening. The comfortable light is particularly suitable for lounge areas, restaurants or public spaces.
