The very name tells us not only about the properties of the luminaire. But it also takes us back to the Renaissance. The fact is that the word is an artistic term used in optics and in the fine arts. It means the optical effect of reflected light. Renaissance artists, abandoning the traditions of the Middle Ages, which paid little attention to perspective and three dimensions of images, began to study the properties of light. Going back to the traditions of antiquity. It was also at this time that artists began to pay particular attention to displaying different textures on canvas, such as the draperies of clothing and fabrics.
All of this was the basis for the inspiration behind creating the luminaires. Metal plafonds with two light sources, covered by frosted glass diffusers, seem to hide from the viewer in decorative circles cut in half. With this design, we can see how one light illuminates a circle from different sides. These elements consist of a fabric that is both translucent, reflective and has an interesting texture. This creates an interesting effect, like the sun rising over the surface of a serene water surface.
The luminaire has a metal ball-shaped plafond with two LED light sources. These are covered by frosted diffusers to create a soft, diffused light in the room. Nevertheless the luminous flux is great, and the luminaire is a powerful light fixture and not just a decorative object. The metal plafond splits the decorative element like a circle in half. And light sources illuminate it on both sides. It consists of fabric and metal wire. This fabric has a distinct texture and is also translucent with a reflective effect. This makes it possible to create interesting lighting effects on it and on neighboring walls. The fabric element is positioned vertically, so it doesn't generate much dust.
The collection consists of a single pendant and a composition of three pendants. The length of the wires is adjustable and exceeds 2 meters. This feature allows the luminaires to be used in stairwells and in rooms with high ceilings. Special ceiling cups with magnetic fixings were developed for the luminaires to make the design more elegant. Without fasteners and bolts.
