Vigo lamp family

The Vigo lamp was developed from the prototype Conica, named after its cone-like shape with its distinctive domestic character.

Considering the domestic setting, Vigo reinterprets a known typology starting from the idea of an old fashioned light, recalling a classic lampshade that contains the light source within a conical form.

Vigo consists of two overlapping cones, one placed inside and flush with the other, and each in a different material. The inner cone is made of black metal while the outer one is of transparent hand-blown borosilicate glass. The two cones produce an aesthetic contrast but act together technically to shape, direct and diffuse the light.

The Vigo family is made up of three variations for floor, wall and ceiling that collectively provide a comprehensive domestic lighting system.
