Optunia by Claesson Koivisto Rune for FontanaArte
Updated: Jan 7
The functionality of the Optunia lamp is based on the ability to tilt the light source around an axis in combination with a second movement, perpendicular to the first axis, to further affect the lighting angle. Each light disc’s one half is a glass diffuser and the other opaque, to make the lights mono-directional.
The discs are added on to each other and their movement is in the joint between the two. The first light disc is either fixed on a wall or ceiling socket disc, or a stem. One or two light discs give the user many ways and possibilities of directing the light. They also give an expression of something that is at once organic but also symbolic. Technical, yet friendly.
