barcelona-based designer joan gaspar has conceived a new luminaire for marset made from flexible fabric material that subtly sift light and readily move with the wind. the ‘jaima’ collection takes its name from the bedouin tents of north africa, and is drawn from the varied fabrics and forms found in the region.

‘jaima’ is available in three sizes and four different colorways. gaspar designed the lamp for marset with a bare interior that helps maximize the quality and strength of the downward light. the shades can be combined with two versatile stands to create a range of configurations for adjustable, rotating floor lamps. furthermore, the fixture can also be affixed directly to the floor or wall, while the shades can be hung independently as pendants.

the video of ‘jaima’ belongs to a broader campaign by marset called ‘product series’ that seeks to position lamps as pieces of art.we wanted to bring them into a sublime space where the visual and distinct effect of the light is the protagonist,’ the marset team tells designboom. ‘curating a display that would set the mood of an art installation, the campaign took shape. the elegant audiovisual pieces reflect the vision behind the detailed work of the designer. the idea behind developing a brand series is to reach the public in a meaningful way, using audiovisual content in tandem with printed assets, to communicate a narrative across a variety of different platforms.
