The concept of this lamp is based on a smooth head which draws a wavy shape on its perimeter, the clear contrast with the lamp inner part, that reminds us of the gentle and small oscillations that marine currents form on the Mediterranean coast.
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.
