a concept borrowed from botanical science defines itself in nature and reveals an intimate essence: the new collection of lamps for exnovo by italian designer alessandro zambelli takes its name from ‘afillia’, a plant without leaves. presented at maison et objet in paris, the range of six lighting accessories consists of three table lamps and three pendant lights. the base is handcrafted in premium swiss pine, which locks onto a nylon light diffuser 3D printed with a sintered polyamide. delicate, lace-like patterns with their geometrical pinholes give rise to two-dimensional origami in thin, curvaceous spirals. the light casts fleeting shadows, then beams into unexpected focus, forming compact halos, round and bright.
