Sculptural lamp inspired by the domes of the Renaissance
17 May 2016 . BY Kate Corney
The Dome lamp plays with light to cast beautiful shadows
Enric Miralles Benedetta Tagliabue Architects (EMBT) have designed a pendant lamp called Dome for Spanish lighting company Bover.

Inspired by the domes of the Renaissance, the Dome hanging lamp creates many shadow patterns onto surfaces below as light flows through its wooden geometric structure.

The LED light sits above the structure to illuminate through the pieces, casting beautiful shadow designs.

The light sculptures are handmade in the Bover Barcelona headquarters, where more than 170 big and small wood fragments are intertwined and connected like a jigsaw puzzle.

The structure is lightweight and is made in three sizes; 180cm, 90cm and 60cm wide, with a natural beech veneer finish. Custom colours can be requested.

Benedetta Tagliabue said “In a journey through time, and by revisiting the history of architecture, we observed the Basilica Mercè in Barcelona, the Pantheon in Rome, the dome Santa Maria del Fiore in Florence and the dome of St. George in Venice.

“With Dome we decided to take the light out of the object so it becomes a light sculpture designed to receive and emit a delicate light, a play of shadows and nuances that enrich the space for which they were created.”
