Resulting from the marriage between the centuries-old tradition of blown glass and the industrial appeal of metal, Metal Glass recalls an alchemist’s still or a lantern from a Gothic setting. It is distinguished by a dense and almost opaque transparency, which is achieved by pouring soda powder into the still-incandescent vitreous paste. The ensuing chemical reaction creates a myriad of bubbles which are transformed into luminous particles, when the lamp is on. The borosilicate glass cylinder inside spreads the light while being part of the design.
Suspended lamp with diffused light. Diffuser made of hand-blown triple-layer glass, the glass is rendered almost matt by the presence of countless air bubbles inside it vetro pulegoso”, The irregular air bubbles are achieved by pouring a substance that triggers this reaction into the molten paste. In the green version, the glass undergoes a coloring process with external painting. A borosilicate glass cylinder acts as a diffuser for the light cast by the light bulb and becomes the decorative element in the volume of the diffuser glass. The steel mount undergoes several acid-etching processes and is subsequently coated with liquid paint; comes with a satin finish metal plate with the Diesel logo. Stainless steel suspension cable and transparent electrical cable, ceiling flange with galvanized metal bracket and matt black batch-dyed ABS cover. Electric decentralization kit available.
