inga sempé reconsiders the way in a lampshade functions with her ‘cappuccina’ lighting. designed for luceplan, ‘cappuccina’ is composed of a slender metal base and a spherical luminous body rendered in opaline glass that contains an LED module. a fabric lampshade, whose subtle patterning has been digitally printed and then bonded with polycarbonate, sits on top of the illuminated globe without any attachment. this configuration allows users to move the shade and orient the light with ease, with the concave base appearing to be an imprint of the glass sphere itself as it emits light.

the two digitally printed patterns on the fabric have been designed by inga sempé herself and express a very evocative degradé texture. on the upper part of the shade, the motif slowly spreads downward, delicately diffusing the light, granting more space to the background color which becomes the dominant hue at the base. ‘cappuccina’ is ideal for the contract sector, thanks to the possibility of customizing the fabrics.

 

the ‘cappuccina’ lamp by inga sempé for luceplan is on show at designpost during imm cologne 2016 from january 18th-24th.

the lamp with shade is a tough typology to reinterpret, so I began the design of cappuccina with a simple, invisible system of orientation of the shade, that would set it apart from other models. based only on the balancing of the shade on a glass sphere, without any mechanical attachment, this system is spontaneous, intuitive. the shade slides on the glass sphere with a soft movement, remaining effortlessly in any position. cappuccina refers to the airy flower, as airy as the light shade in this collection.’ – inga sempé
