Cornet has a personality strongly rooted in nature and it brightens the space it is in.
It is a lamp made of polyurethane, which is a hard and resistant material that is perfect for public spaces. The Cornet’s use is very versatile. It is mainly used as a bollard lamp but can quickly connect with a wider reality: interior wall lamps, or the post version for intermediate spaces. In all of its designs, Cornet includes a dimmable LED source that distributes light through the lamp’s undulating layers, creating an atmosphere that is natural, slightly broken, but never dominant. Cornet is a highly technical project, yet full of life.

Barcelona (España), 1972.
I studied technical architect in combination with artistic practice in different disciplines like painting, photography and installation.
Simultaneously, I started in the practice of industrial design meeting the concerns and the vocation to participate in the solutions of the objects that immediately surround us.
Understanding the object from its function on a human scale, innovating from there, is what I mean by design.
Instead of working on the object, I work from people and situations, approaching the object from that angle, and then I try to compose the piece in the simplest way possible.
In 1996 Joana Bover founded BOVER in Barcelona. After 20 years of market development, what began as a sketch on a napkin for an architect friend’s project has evolved and grown to become one of the leading companies in the contemporary lighting sector, with its own subsidiary in the United States and a presence in countries worldwide.
