With no more than fingertips, one can achieve a feeling of weightlessness with the Copérnica lamp.
As if levitating, it moves through space effortlessly, without friction or resistance. Circles, semicircles, tubes, and bars of different diameters, materials, and weights…with the combination of these primary elements the Copérnica collection constructs geometric sculptures of light, establishing an intimate relationship with space and combining functionality with the beauty of pure lines. The collection consists of desktop and standing versions that play with counterweights of mixed materials and density, such as steel and aluminium. This design allows one to move the lamp with great precision, providing a wide range of heights, distances, and adjustments to the beam of light to suit one’s taste. The upright version, a true statement piece, stands almost two meters in height and directly or indirectly illuminates the environment with its tilting head system. Copérnica draws minimalist sculptures in space as if it were a canvas, and the carefully selected colors add soft chromatic touches to the ensemble.
Jaume Ramírez and Josema Carrillo met in 2001 while working in the Basque Country, where they started their own studio. For their first design, the Delica collection of trays, they received their first Gold Delta award, along with Red Dot Design and Design Plus awards.
In 2005 they moved to Barcelona, where they started working with Escofet to develop a branding and communications strategy, designed the exhibit for the 2007 and 2009 Delta Awards, and built the identity of Parklex, which they are still working with to this day.
At the same time, a more spontaneous assignment created close ties to France, where they have taken part several times in the Saint-Etienne Biennale and the Designer Days in Paris, exhibiting in venues such as the Modern Art Museum of the city of Paris, in the City of Fashion and Design and even in the renowned Parisian store Merci.
Since 2014 they have been based out of both Barcelona and their new studio in Milan, working for Marset, Arcos, Normann Copenhagen, and Mobles 114.
