‘conduit’ by hoi kaloi

 

‘conduit’ is a tabletop lamp that connects the heritage of marble design with contemporary manufacturing techniques. created by athens-based design studio hoi kaloi, its shape references the archetypal roman aqueduct remains that dot the southern european landscape, forming a ‘luminous conduit’ for the home. its solid marble is CNC-milled and adapted to fit a standardized 30 cm tubular bulb.

an unforced elegance yet intimacy 

 

the lamp by hoi kaloi (see more here) features an elaborately milled groove on one side to accommodate the cable while exposing it, enhancing the directional sense between power source and light. the choice of marble was decided based on locality. three distinct greek types were chosen, ‘chios’ in dark brown, ‘ioannina’ in warm grey, and the ‘classic pentelic’ in bright white. the non-local travertine was added as a reclaimed material, with its origin justified due to its familiarity and abundant presence in the athenian built environment of the 1960s and 1970s.

 

‘conduit’ is part of the ‘gran turismo’ greek design collection currently on digital gallery adorno.design
