The elliptical structure of its outer casing, composed of blades, serves simultaneously as a non-dazzle screen, a reflector of the central light source and a heat dissipater.Five pairs of polycarbonate interchangeable filters determine the varying colours of its lamellar body. In fact Titania can be coloured as desired, by a simple movement of the hand to slot the different filters in and out and to give the lamp a ?dematerialised? colour - while always maintaining an emission of white light!A touch of the fingers is enough to send it into a variety of suspended positions and, depending on which angle it is seen from, it assumes completely different appearances: transparent if seen from the front, and as a solid body if seen from the side. The spherical counterweight, allowing its up-down adjustment, can be inserted or removed at any time. Titania is a dynamic and surprising lamp, suitable for a wide variety of settings. Thanks to its very light aluminium body, it can be hung from plaster, wood or sloping ceilings. The versatility of its components enables it to be attached to any part of the ceiling with no need for an already installed mains plug.

Luceplan was founded with the objective of creating and producing interior and exterior lighting and to enhance the quality of living. Energy saving is top priority. Embracing the environmental compatibility of their whole operation – from choice of materials to the manufacturing process, from product durability to product maintenance. If an object is to last, it needs to be beautiful as well as technologically sound. But a long-lasting product also offers better environmental compatibility and it outlives fashions. Formed in 1978, Luceplan’s history is marked by well-defined constant – experimentation, research and quality and by a philosophy focused on creating “beautiful items for the public at large”.
Luceplan Titania Suspension Lamp Designed by:
- Alberto Meda , 1989
- Paolo Rizzatto , 1989
Alberto Meda studied mechanical engineering in Milan, graduating in 1969. Soon after he was appointed technical director for the design-oriented manufacturer, Kartell. In 1979 Meda made the decision to pursue independent work as a designer and engineer.
The wonderfully functional and comfortable Meda task chair, designed during the 1990’s for Vitra, combines ergonomic sophistication with a visual coherence that testifies to his engineering background. Meda’s portfolio is comprised of a wide range of products – everything from cars for Alfa Romeo to high-tech lighting for Luceplan. Meda is acknowledged for his ability to use state-of-the-art materials in ways that are visually arresting as well as structurally sound. Alberto Meda has been working with Vitra since 1994. During this time he has created a series of office chairs and a variety of office and conference desks.
Today he lives in Milan.
Paolo Rizzatto was born in 1941 in Milan, Italy, where he studied architecture at the Milan Polytechnic. In 1968 he opened his own studio and worked on lighting, architectural and interior design projects. In 1978 he founded Luceplan together with Riccardo Sarfatti. With the 265 Lamp collection, Rizzato’s work was recognized internationally.
This collection would be followed by the Berenice Table Lamps and the Titania Hanging Lamps, which are reminiscent of floating submarines (both created in collaboration with Alberto Meda and produced by Luceplan). The Costanza series of lighting represents his work at its best, ethereal and uncluttered.
Over the years Rizzatto has received many important national and international awards for design, including three Compasso d’oro Awards, 1981, 1989 and 1994. His creations are part of the permanent collections of museums such as the Wave Hill Museum Centre for Environmental Studies, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and the National Museum of Science and Technology in Milan.
