Space Copenhagen. Design year: 2020.
Introducing Lucca, a multipurpose piece that easily transitions from indoors to outside.
Defined by an elegant, soft shape and dark curving lines around the base and handle, Lucca is a portable and dimmable lamp that produces a welcoming, homey ambience and can fit any space and purpose - be it indoors, or out. The lamp’s outer shell, built out of satinised opal glass, diffuses the light into a soft and warming glow, and on the base, a discreet dimmer allows for three different settings to match lighting to mood. Powered by a battery, the lamp operates for 12 hours at the highest setting and is easily recharged with a USB cable, meaning that it can be carried around the home for some added ambience, or taken outdoors during warmer evenings.
Behind the design are Space Copenhagen founders Signe Bindslev Henriksen and Peter Bundgaard Rützou, who found inspiration in cities and towns across the Mediterranean. They were fascinated by the distinct golden glow that illuminates the narrow, winding roads of picturesque costal towns and of quaint countryside villages at night, and wanted to recreate that same dreamy atmosphere through an elegant, portable lamp. “Our Lucca lamp is a simple yet elegant lamp that was inspired by the intriguing atmosphere we experienced in the Mediterraean,” notes Henriksen. “Use it both as a classic lamp or as a substitute for candlelight – in the house, the garden, or the terrace.” The designers named the piece after the historic northern Tuscan city of Lucca, a word that resembles the Italian term for “light”: luce.
The glass shade is made from mouth blown satinized opal glass. The metal parts are deep drawn or bend and finally powder coated.
The base and the lamp shade are molded in polycarbonate (PC).
