the mexico-city based practice, studio davidpompa, unveils their new ‘origo’ lighting collection, which is to be launched during 2019’s milan design week. the project explores ideas of materiality and texture by combining two contrasting spheres of volcanic rock and opal glass to create a complementary composition of opposing elements.

by pairing the two different materials together, the design by davidpompa emphasises the contrasting textures. the soft light from the opal glass shines onto the texture of the volcanic rock, revealing it’s natural surface. deriving from the latin term ‘origo’, which describes the origin of the universe, a specific point of time, an intersection of axes, the collection aims to convey the idea of light and darkness.

either hung as a pendant lamp or mounted on a wall, the ‘origo’ collection creates a dynamic interaction between lightness and heaviness, and is expressed in both timeless pieces, providing an elegant, muted light. the series aims to define the new aesthetics of davidpompa, while reinforcing the character and values of the brand.
