The Uma™ Chandelier And The Wet Bell™ Lamp

Designer Giancarlo Tintori’s contemporary take on the chandelier comes in the form of a concentric cascade of methacrylate cones, “offering the same lustre and visual magnificence as its traditional forebears, and an even greater sense of allure and mystique.” Part of a new collection from Nemo Cassina, Uma™ uses fluorescent light and innumerable transparent acrylic cones to create an imposing form of lighting. And also available from Nemo Cassina is a new design by Kasper Salto & Thomas Sigsgaard: the curvilinear Wet Bell™, a hanging lamp that does not hang but is instead supported by a stem that descends from the ceiling. The elegantly flowing form of the stem outlines the shade (semi-ellipsoidal in shape, and made of turned aluminum with a sleek zapon lacquer finish) supporting it from below, “and thus conferring remarkable visual lightness.”
