The task of designing a lamp with essential lines and shape, with both direct and diffuse light has led us to create Bale lamp. The archetypical shape (Bale in Friuli language means “ball”) focuses on the functionality offering direct and diffuse light thanks to the transparent bottom and the sandblasted upper section. The function follows the design and design follows the function emphasizing the aesthetic: this is Bale collection.

The task of designing a lamp with essential lines and shape, with both direct and diffuse light has led us to create Bale lamp. The archetypical shape (Bale in Friuli language means “ball”) makes it suitable for any kind of interior designs but with a particular attention to contemporary atmospheres.

The decision of making 1/4 transparent glass and 3/4 sandblasted glass rises from the necessity of focusing the direct light on the bottom side and concentrate it on the beneath surface while maintaining an indirect and diffuse lighting on the mid top side.

The function follows the design and design follows the function emphasizing the aesthetic; the function makes the design itself distinctive and recognizable. The difference on the surface is admirable both visually and to the touch.
