A white blown-glass sphere compliments a sophisticated brushed brass base ring; this contrasting use of materials reflects the philosophy of design duo Neri & Hu, by expressing luxury, opulence and grace.
Beautiful and unique, the NH1217 Table Lamp possesses an unusual configuration which affords high degree of versatility in how the piece can be utilised. By sliding the blown-glass sphere along the brass ring, the diffuser can take up different positions and be freely adjusted. Its frame can become a support, a hook to hang the luminaire from a wall, or a handle from which users can interact with the light. Traditional and innovative, the NH1217 continues Artemide and Neri & Hu’s research on the dynamic interaction between materials, form and light.
