The lightness of a sign that outlines a body and a form to narrate a function.

Slender and compact in size and simple to move around thanks to its easy-to-grip central knot, this lamp provides powerful upward lighting. Touch dimmer providing 4 different luminous intensity settings. A high-performance light point, whose colour can either highlight or camouflage its presence.

“Tobia is an example of how simplicity can have character. The lightness of a sign that becomes an object, almost a child’s drawing that outlines a body and a form to narrate a function.”

Product description
In the ftoor version, Tobia is a portable luminator that projects powerful light upward. Slender, compact, easy to move, this lamp finds a piace in any space: a concentrate of possibilities, packed into a simple sign. Flexibility and functional quality are the strong points of Tobia. The centrai node is not just a graphic gesture, but also an invitation to grip: the lamp becomes nomadic. A high performance light point, where colour underscores or attenuates its presence.
In the wall version Tobia is available with and without cable, in five different colours. A special element allows easy fixing to the wall. Light is emitted upwards and downwards from the two extremities of the lamp.
