Starlight – Karboxx

June 3, 2019

Serena Papait’s version of the sky and earth has become an origami design from which the Starlight lamp was born. The design has a slender discreet shape that does not create light but shadows and reflections. The play on full and empty in the constant contrast between light and dark, gives the environment in which Starlight is placed a private atmosphere where time stops. 

The lamp hides the light source by incorporating it into the design itself through the lines where the LED strips are applied. The finishes were chosen in neutral tones because Starlight’s indirect light would have absorbed them and made them disappear. The bent sheet metal and laser cutting have balanced the thickness, giving this object a subtle presence. /
