Back to nature this Summer! VIBIA collection Musa is lamp of organic quality inspired by nature's poetic delicacy.
Created by Note Design Studio, Musa offers a delicate and elegant design where a symbiotic interaction is established between the small hand blown opal glass sphere and the dish that holds and reflects it. Designed as a table lamp there is also a portable model with its own battery ending it complete autonomy. Its capacity of being able to work anywhere underlines its poetic physical form.
Its simple silhouette consists of two ovals: the circular bowl and the hand-blown, milky-white opal glass shade with the LED-powered bulb it cradles within its concave curves.
To create Musa, the designers began by painstakingly folding pieces of paper to create prototypes, followed by extensive sketching and 3-D printing of various versions.
The result? A smooth, circular bowl whose aluminum dissippator is cleverly tucked behind the glass so as not to disrupt the fixture’s organic, flowing form. A small, dim-able bulb nestles at its base captures the light and transforms it into a soft illumination.
Musa’s warm reflection is enhanced by a choice of subtle, earth-tone finishes: white, salmon, and mink.
