The New Étoile takes its name and inspiration from the dance world.
The suspension’s impalpable, graceful shapes take form thanks to our patented Lentiflex®, available in two sizes fit for private interiors or more dramatic spaces, and a versatile ceiling/applique version.
The lamp’s biggest innovation is the new LED MagneticSystem®: the patented circuits can be removed with a simple click, even when the lamp has already been installed, and therefore easily substituted.
The crystal drop enriches the lamp’s surface and gives balance to the asymmetrical wings, just as the designer desired.
In April 2018, we also launched La Belle Étoile, with a tone-on-tone, linear design.
Born in 1984. After receiving a degree in Industrial Design in 2007, Adriano began his professional career in SLAMP’S Research & Development department, where he continues his success today. Going against the trend of mass-produced items, Adriano Rachele gives each of his pieces the feeling of a single edition while still managing to produce them in series.
Rachele believes that design should possess soul, express poetry and emotion that tells a story extending beyond simple forms. This concept comes through in his soft, sinuous designs, whose forms emphasise the unique identity of the brand, and enhance their individual hand-crafted style. His challenge is to create objects which combine technology, functionality and innovation with tradition and emotion, while maintaining their ironic and accessible nature.
In 2010, he was recognised as one of the top young talents in Italian design for his Veli project, which won the Red Dot Design Award in 2012.
