Elegant and sensual movement are part of La Belle Étoile’s visual grammar; the suspension is inspired by the graceful twirling of a ballerina.
The lightweight yet unbreakable lamp is completely handcrafted in Slamp’s atelier. The dialogue between technological innovation and stylistic originality speaks loudly; the LED source can be easily and quickly changed thanks to the exclusive magnetic hanging system, and a white texture printed on transparent, patented polymers, are elements that combine to create refined, contemporary design. The soft, luminous LED source can be dimmed from full illumination to a supple ambient glow to compliment its surroundings. Both the suspension and applique/ceiling versions are versatile, avantgarde lighting solutions offering minimalistic, glamorous aesthetics. La Belle Étoile brings sculptural illumination to an array of interiors.
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.
