designed by paris-based arro studio, the ‘albedo’ is a standing lamp made of metal, that is produced by the french brand dix heures dix. the 190cm high, light integrates a hexagonal (hexacon) frame as a structural element that also diffuses the luminescent strength. three discs top the lamp, with LED projectors pointing towards their surface. PMMA (a highly shatter-resistant and lightweight thermoplastic) was crafted to soften a subtle, indirect light. the slender ‘albedo’ is silhouetted against its background while guiding light towards the ceiling and the ground at the same time. the lamp debuted among the ‘now! design à vivre’ selection part of maison&objet in january 2014.
