Chemistry instruments inform test tube ‘Labo’ lamps for Italian house Penta.
January 4th, 2014
Based on instruments often found in chemistry laboratories, ‘Labo’, designed by London-based design duo Daniel Debiasi and Dederico Sandri, is a collection of lamps for the Italian manufacturer Penta. The delicate pieces are constructed from borosilicate glass, and as their name suggests, the resulting forms refer to typical items found in a laboratory.
A powered cord covered in fabric is clearly visible through the tubular-shaped base, becoming an integral part of the piece. The curved lampshade is made entirely out of glass, reflecting the extended light fitting onto its surface. ‘Labo’ comes in three different colours: Transparent, Smoke or Blue, and as a small or tall sized desk lamp. The playful object offers a fun contrast to the serious nature of the name from which it is derived.
