Cappuccina by Inga Sempé is a fixture composed of a slender metal base and a spherical luminous body in opaline glass, containing an LED module, on which the fabric shade simply rests, without attachment: this configuration makes it possible to move the shade and orient the light to meet different needs.
The concave base seems to be the imprint of the glass sphere that emits the light. The decoration of the fabric, made with digital printing and then bonded with polycarbonate, represents a design in the design. The four patterns have been created by the designer herself: a very evocative degradé texture. Very close in the upper part of the shade, the pattern gradually spreads downward, creating a delicate shading in tune with the light that is projected on the fabric, and granting more space to the background color, which becomes dominant.
In the table and floor versions, the lamp is available in four color combinations, where the pattern contrasts with the background tone, giving rise to very different lamps: white and black, pale tones, dark and bright tones. Cappuccina is ideal for the contract sector, thanks to the possibility of customizing the fabrics, and an accessory that blocks the shade.
“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
