An innovative floor lamp for indirect lighting, in which the Argentine designer Francisco Gomez Paz has metaphorically transfigured the harmonious, sensual movements of the dance of the same name, giving the fixture a dynamic posture of variable geometry, which through a simple gesture makes it possibly to gently adjust the direction of the beam. Mounted on a triangular steel base, the jointed structure of the lamp composed of three mobile aluminium shafts with elastomer joints nimbly lends itself to a fluid mechanical torsion movement generated at the height of the middle part of the shafts. A movement that is propagated up to the top of the lamp, or at the position of the reflector, which is also triangular, setting its angle and making it possible to direct the light where it is needed with respect to the standard initial position, in which the beam is aimed upward, and the position of arrival, in which it is directed towards the wall. Outfitted with linear LEDs, the reflector of the lamp contains the electronic circuitry and emits diffused, homogeneous indirect light thanks to the screens in molded methacrylate. The on/off switch and sensory dimmer are placed near the upper part of one of the three shafts that support the lamp’s reflector.

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”.
