Studio David Pompa – Meta black- David Pompa – LES VRAIS
Volcanic rock and coated aluminium pendant lamp
A timeless pendant lamp made from volcanic rock and coated aluminium. Both materials of the Meta black formed into cylindrical shapes emphasize a smooth yet sharp aesthetics with a monochromatic palette of tones. A sculpture on its own and a light architecture in a cluster of many. Dark toned nuances of Meta enclose the warm light cone that strikes the surface below. An enigmatic statement brought to its minimum.
