Elipse proposes a change in plane: illumination from the bottom up in this new floor lamp for outdoor spaces by Josep Lluís Xuclà.
Embracing simplicity, its design consists of an aluminium tube with two openings that allow the light to be projected from the top and to escape from the bottom. The opening at the top features an irregular shape, an aesthetic detail visible when the lamp is off and greatly enhanced when it is on, as a perfect ellipse is traced on the lamp itself, standing out in the darkness.
The interior of the tube is white and, when illuminated, the light grows and comes alive, as the lamp itself almost seems to disappear, and only the light remains. Meanwhile, at the bottom the light escapes, and the base that supports functions as a reflective screen, such that the light seems to float.
In expansive outside settings this lamp enhances the light that it emits as it interplays with whatever it illuminates: a tree, a garden, a wall, or a façade.
Available with graphite grey or brown in two heights: 48 and 79 cm. Elipse functions as a single lighting element, or in combination with several at the same time. This collection also offers an outdoor wall version.
