Paris, France 2010
The Javelot lamp was created together with Studio Odile Decq and Luceplan for the extension of the MACRO Museum (Rome’s Museum of Contemporary Art).
Designed whilst under the mentorship of French architect Odile Decq, the Javelot lamp was created together with Luceplan for an extension to the MACRO Museum (Rome’s Museum of Contemporary Art). The outcome of innovative research, experimentation and avantgarde design was an elegant and evocative lighting fixture which is both functional and sustainable.
The Javelot lamp was created in two versions, a ceiling mounted lamp for indoor, and a freestanding lamp for outdoors. The ceiling lamp consists of a single tapered body in aluminium with conic ends in glossy methacrylate, capable of diffusing suggestive illumination thanks to dramatic LED sources.
The freestanding lamp consists of three luminous ‘javelins’ that intersect at an asymmetrical joint assembled on a pole, giving rise to a sculpture creating unprecedented outdoor choreographies. Each individual element features two LEDs with a colour temperature of 3,000°K for an extremely low consumption of just 16W.
