Lamp Polka by Fabbian
Polka collection was inspired by some of the classic floor lights from the ’60’s and ’70’s, reinterpreted with a twist, breathing life into a new kind of outdoor lighting thanks to the use of new materials, finishes, and technology. Polka is made up of two elements: light and support, conceived in contrasting forms and meters seeking out dialogue and balance. The diffuser is composed of a rotationally moulded plastic disk, suitable for outdoor environments, whose circumference appears “flattened” creating an opening along the centre line allowing it to interact with the support. The support, as slim as a floor lamp, is a polished stainless steel tube which functions as a support for the light and also insulates the cables. The floor lamp is transformed into an actual platform upon which the diffuser is grafted. As such, the focus of the project is on the union of these two elements, hidden as if by magic by the diffusor shell. The light sources are high-efficiency LEDs and the power supply is integrated inside Polka.
