Benedetta Tagliabue has designed a new pendant lamp called Dome for the Spanish lighting company Bover.


Dome is a lamp inspired by the domes of the Renaissance.


In a journey through time, and by revisiting the history of architecture, we have observed the Basilica Mercè in Barcelona, the Pantheon in Rome, the dome Santa Maria del Fiore in Florence and dome of St. George in Venice. Dome is a new hanging lamp that projects the light and shadows from his wooden pieces. It is also inspired from the domes of the utopian geodesic world of R. Buckminster Fuller, becoming a double dome, towards the sky and towards the land.


The light plays with the complex geometry of Dome, creating innumerable designs of light and shadows, which accompany this lightweight lamp, yet big format.


Technical description: Big format interior pendant made of more than 170 puzzled wood pieces in beech veneer finish. The LED light is above the wooden structure to illuminate throughout the open and diffused portions casting beautiful shadow patterns on surfaces below. Due to the sculptural nature and requirement to have LED lamping above the fixture, a minimum height of 120cm/47.24in is required. Dome is in 3 sizes: 180, 90 and 60 cm. Custom colors on request.
