Here's some more information from Bevk Perovic Arhitekti:


The lamp’s design owes its form to the funnel, a highly typical household object, something all our grandmothers used in their kitchens, bottling and decanting wine, olive oil and similar throughout their lifetimes.

While a familiar object it’s also been transformed into a new one, hanging above the kitchen or dining table as a recognizable, iconic light source – a small funnel that serves as a ceiling rosette, a large one casting light onto the horizontal surface below.

The same elements are further transformed into table and floor lamps, with a large pivoting funnel shade that allows for specific directing of the light.

A tube-like ray of light projects up and out of the top of the shade, creating a playful dot on the ceiling or neighbouring walls.

material: spun aluminium, steel
colour: matt white
