Words from the designer and craftsman Daniel Kage: ‘The dodecahedron from the previous collection takes 25 hour to be finished. For this new collection, each one took me around 200 hours. They really passed through a very delicate building process, specially polishing. The polished thickness of each leave, the interior side, and all details that invite one to really admire not only the light that they produce, but the lamp in itself. It is a unique collection in all meanings’.
The Philosophy: For thousands of years these sacred shapes have been enchanting humans. The Greek philosopher Plato, in his Timaeus c. 350 B.C., equated the five Solids with the five Elements: the Cube with Earth, the Icosahedron with Water, the Tetrahedron with Fire, the Octahedron with Air, and the Dodecahedron with the element Ether from which the constellations and heavens were made.
Only in the 1980s the american Robert James Moon, physicist, chemist and engineer from the University of Chicago proved that the entire table of chemical elements is based in these 5 Platonic Solids. These shapes are the source of every single matter that exist in the Universe.
The light that comes out from the lamps through the geometric progression pattern creates an unique fractal grid, bringing a beautiful sensation of calmness and peace.
They are made of stainless steel, the patterns are cut in waterjet laser and each side is welded together and mirrored polished, keeping the clean and pure beauty of the shape.
