The steel frame of the Chrysalis Floor Lamp hides a piece of decorative glass, projecting a pattern onto the ceiling when illuminated.
Internal structure in steel. Cocoon diffuser coated on the structure with transparent protection at the end of the manufacturing process. Base in injection printed ABS. Frieze in silk-screened glass placed at the top end of the reflector obtained by spinning. The ON/OFF functions of the two light sources are by means of dual pedal switch mounted on power cable. The fluorescent tube can be dimmed, conserving the memory of the last setting before turn-off. The second button turns on/off the top lamp for the projection of the decorative frieze on the ceiling. ×
