Irregular and apparently random intersections of spatial planes create a volume around the light source and produce the dynamic character of the exuberant ceiling lamp designed by Enrico Franzolini and Vicente Garcia Jimenez. By evoking the dynamism of an explosion, the methacrylic planes - available in the white or two-coloured (white/grey or white/red) versions; seem to escape the central luminous core and explode in all directions. A highly luminous body, characterized by the intrigues of light and shade, of great visual impact, ideal for single-handedly personalizing interiors of various styles. Big Bang provides an intense, decisive and direct light. The particular arrangement of the surfaces guarantees maximum reflection and a different lighting effect from all angles.
