I was trying to find an image that represents the greek summer and to transform that in an object. Big sun, endless blue sea, clean sand, islands, transparent water. It was then about to remind myself of the very very first image that anyone has when he wakes up in Greece at summer time. Is the sunlight passes easily even from the closed shutters through louvres. This is the idea behind Louvre light, bright light passes through material without casting any shadows on itself either on the surfaces around, including a playful attitude at the same time. Chosen materials are the plexiglass, with different heights, half of them passed from sandblasting process for different diffusion effect, and the cork, all cutted in rings using a laser cutter machine. Changing their order accordingly the user defines the volume and the diffusion of the light, plus the aesthetic of the table lamp. There are endless combinations, playful user's experience, simple interaction, total control and safety.
