Leucos will be at the 41st edition of Arte Fiera (BolognaFiere Exhibition Centre, 27 – 30 January 2017) with one of its iconic models, the Leva lamp designed by Massimo Iosa Ghini in 2012.
In fact, eleven Leva lamps will complete the furnishing of PrintVille, the new bookshop that will be welcoming visitors before they enter the tradeshow pavilions. In this innovative place, where it will be possible to leaf through rare volumes and purchase art catalogues and books, the Leucos lamps will provide light and elegance to the eleven reading stations.
The Leva lamp was designed by combining ancient materials and ultra sophisticated lighting technologies through research and in-depth analysis of the single components and of mechanisms that echo Leonardo da Vinci’s contraptions, in search of the magic of the dynamic balance expressed by this lamp.
Just a few basic pieces joined together in a lamp featuring a strong formal balance in which artisanship is revealed in the care of the process that led to the final product.
The main element is a sustainable material such as wood, here selected in beech, natural colour.
The Leva lamp has two arms that allow vertical movement by means of a pantograph mechanism that silently slides along a hidden track. The head features a special diffuser consisting of a plate with 100 micro LEDs –– significant use flexibility. The metal volume of the lamp base constitutes the balancing element of the entire structure.
