EQUILIBRIO - A lamp floating in the air

€21,493

EQUILIBRIO lamp has been created drawing inspiration from the constant equilibrium among the fundamental forces that gives life to our Universe.

The result is a lamp based on the balance between gravity and magnetic attraction. With a simple interaction, EQUILIBRIO is able to change from a diffused to a direct light.

 

By experimenting with magnetic attraction on different weights and materials, studying optics, lenses and light diffusion, we succeeded in creating a minimalistic lamp which functionality is determined by equilibrium.

Featured in ____________________________

HOW IT WORKS _________________________

EQUILIBRIO is a lamp with no structure. When the two ends of the lamp are close, the magnetic force in between them becomes strong enough to challenge gravity, letting the lamp magically float in the air.  

Thanks to its design, EQUILIBRIO can have a more diffused light when the two ends of the lamp are perfectly aligned, allowing the light to spread from the bottom to the top part. Breaking the balance by taking the lower part, the light source can be used as a direct light.

 

   

Meet EQUILIBRIO FLOOR __________________

The FLOOR version is a minimalistic lamp that will leave all your guests totally astonished. Its simple design fits any decor and creates the perfect ambience.

 

Meet EQUILIBRIO DESK ___________________

EQUILIBRIO DESK version brings the same sense of lightness and simplicity directly in your working space. This very interactive light creates an entertaining and appealing sense of magic.

 

  

Meet EQUILIBRIO WALL ___________________

 

A series of EQUILIBRIO lamps creates the EQUILIBRIO WALL, a unique light wall that can be used as a separè in your homes and working spaces. EQUILIBRIO WALL can be customized in shape, size and number of lights.

 

TECHNICAL SPECS ______________________

EQUILIBRIO is composed of two symmetric tubes. The first is an anodized aluminium tube which contains LED, the second is a sanded Plexiglass light diffuser. A ring magnet is placed at the end of each tube, generating the magnetic attraction able to sustain the weight of the bottom part. The length of the cable is measured to let the two components attracted but not to get in contact.

INSTALLATION (Floor version)

1.Without removing the divisor that holds together the two sides of the lamp, hang the eyebolt to the ceiling hook. Both lamp cables must be very tense. In order to stretch the structure, the length of the steel cord can be adjusted depending on your ceiling.

2.Only when the whole structure is tight, you can carefully remove the support between the two sides of the lamp. Slowly put near the two parts of the lamp, and gently leave the bottom part to be supported by the magnetic force.

3.If the structure is well tightened, the distance between the two magnets should be exactly 16mm. If the distance between the two parts isn't around 16mm, please go back to point 1 and re-adjust the length of the steel wire.

Risks and challenges

EQUILIBRIO lamp is the first project we launch as a design studio in the world. This could scare the most expert baker but we are really motivated and ready to achieve our goal. The feedback obtained during the exhibitions in London (UK), Vancouver (CA) and Milan (IT) made us understand the possibilities of our team.

Our strengths are our technical skills, our reliable suppliers and our passion for product design. We know that life is not always fully predictable and there might be unexpected problems waiting for us on the road to mass production but we have the skills to overcome them all.

We already did the functional tests and our suppliers are ready to start the production. The challenges we have to overcome now are the Certification of EQUILIBRIO and the partnership with a Reliable Courier. We do not see these aspects as obstacles for our project but are the last two challenges we have to face before putting our lamp in your hands.

As we are not a legal entity yet, the kickstarter campaign has been built as an individual. As soon as the campaign is won, we will establish the studio and start the mass production.

Together we can make this happen!

    EQUILIBRIO - CRAZY OFFER

    THE CRAZY OFFER

    In our deep immagination, we saw a "wall of light" able to make people dream like a little child does. We would love to do a more crazy offer with 100 meters of EQUILIBRIO, but this could have been too much.

    We do not know if someone will bake this one, but in our dream this "crazy offer" will always be real!
