alessandro zambelli has conceived ‘woodspot’ for mantua-based furnisher, seletti, at the fall 2014 maison et objet in paris. the work is a hexagonal table lamp assembled and varnished entirely by hand. joined to the moulded support are a base and a light diffuser, both made of pine with a natural finish. the two components form an acute angle in relation to one another like the prop of a picture frame, adding stability to the overall structure. with the aesthetic of a three-dimensional, hexagonal shade that appears to expand as it moves towards its resting surface, the emerging beam softens the solid materiality of the wood and casts a warm and compact pool of illuminance within any environment. the 60W device is available in ivory white, flesh pink, and pastel green.
