Aquilles

Using reflection to cast indirect light onto the desk. This is what Achille Castiglioni thought for its Gibigiana lamp. His lamp is roughly an empty cone, into which the bulb is placed while, on the top, an adjustable tilting mirror reflects the light. In the same way, Aquilles reflects the light casted by a bulb positioned inside a pipe, but instead of having gears and hinges, the reflective elements is a mirrored globular pyrex you can tilt: it will cast the light toward every point of your desk. The set of lamp was designed for Edition of Six exhibition, at Ventura Lambrate during the Milan Design Week 2011.
