Soho is presented as a statement, in recognition of the merits of the lamps traditionally used in markets, taverns and cafeterias.
After studying different volumes, proportions and materials, new uses and lighting effects have emerged. The use of rotation-moulded polyethylene allows us to easily offer this fixture in a wide range of sizes. Whereas before the Soho collection offered diameters of 57 and 112 cm, now it’s also available in a smaller size, measuring just 38 cm. This new size is more appropriate for smaller spaces, and increases the overall versatility of this fixture. The existing colour range—black, grey and translucent white—is now joined by two new tones: sand and sky blue. Several outdoor models are also available for illuminating porches, gardens and terraces or open-air dining areas. Shade in rotary moulded polyethylene. Methacrylate opal diffuser.
