Velvet takes its name from its velvety covering, the fireproof Micro 2000 fabric with a suede effect.
All the lamps in the collection (hanging, ceiling, wall and floor lamps) feature a tapered shade covered in this material. The stand of the floor versions, available with a 70 cm diameter, is also covered in Micro 2000. In the ceiling version diameters vary from 70 to 160 cm and from 50 to 160 cm in the hanging version, while the wall lamp is available in widths of 45 up to 70 cm.
Velvet comes in ten colours: ivory white, brown, orange, red, bordeaux, green, light blue, blue, ice white or black. The lamps use halogen, fluorescent, incandescent or metal halide bulbs.
Born in Venice in 1971, Manuel Vivian obtained his diploma at the Venice Art Institute and began to design at a very young age, blown glass in particular, thanks also to his family business. Following the success of his first projects in glass, Manuel enlarged his range of interests to various other fields of interior design. Since the creation of Axo Light in 1996, he has collaborated constantly with the company and has become one of the main designers.
Manuel designed for Axolight some of the most famous collections, such as Bell, Skin, Skirt, Aura, Clavius, Spillray, Fairy, Virtus, Polia LED, Framework LED and many others.
