MICHELE DE LUCCHI
The new versions of Ipno are based on the optical principle of the suspension model presented at the last edition of Euroluce.
A key feature are the optics, which create an almost magical effect by plying the light in total transparency with superior emission control achieved thanks to soft and sinuous geometric shapes.
The innovative optics direct the light and concentrate it downwards, opening up into soft, direct light emission.
The optics function according to a principle of TIR (Total Internal Reflection), taking shape as the light travels through the material, yet only a minimal percentage of light is emitted into the room in a diffused and uncontrolled manner.
In the new suspension model, the optics are housed in a metal disc that stretches out softly into a cone towards the suspension point, emphasised by a subtle light detail.
Thanks to the use of colour, this element changes the perception of the Ipno suspension lamp: balanced and strikingly simple in white, or more unexpected and valuable yet nevertheless elegant in the version combining a gold interior and a black exterior.
Ipno merges tradition with innovation in a harmonious shape, combining manufacturing expertise with optical savoir-faire.
In the wall lamp version, the optics are supported by a simple white structure, designed to permit installation facing either up or down, so the lamp can be used for direct or indirect lighting.
“Ipno was created to capture and solidify the shape of the light emitted by
a COB LED. “
