From the memory of artistic representations of Medusa comes Aspid, the suspension lamp with sinuous lines and strong colours: a lamp that is the protagonist of the living areas.
It’s not just beautiful design that makes Murano glass so desirable it’s skill, craftsmanship and techniques perfected over generations, like multi layer blowing techniques which are used to create stunning pieces. This skill, dedication and craftsmanship give the finish pieces a level of unique beauty that pressed, spin dried and other industrial coloured glass production technique simply cannot match.
Available as wall or pendant lamp, Aspid is made of hand-made shaped glass mounted on a chrome metal structure.
Aspid combines Murano glass-work ancient tradition with high-quality lighting techniques: with its double switching, the light spreads in a pleasant way thanks to the different colours of the decorative glass (black, red, amethyst and crystal).
Designed by Danilo De Rossi, this product offers a decorative style and a strong effect.
