This year, Martinelli Luce is introducing a new table lamp at Maison et Objet Paris, designed by renowned designer Karim Rashid: Cyborg.
The structure of the lamp is of cast aluminum painted in colors cyan, lime, grey and natural aluminum color.
“While you were dreaming, Cyborg beamed down from above and landed on your bed side table. The small, die-cast aluminum lamp responds to human contact thanks to touch-sensitive controls. Thanks to the digital age we have new technologies, production processes, materials, software and tools allowing me to create sensual and organic shapes, like Cyborg” says Karim Rashid.
