David Pompa Origo Table lamp is made out of volcanic rock
A geometric interaction between volcanic rock and opal glass diffuser
The new composition complements both pendant and wall version, bringing its aesthetic to a more personal space.
Two geometrical spheres of contrasting yet complementary materials.
The smooth dimmer allows Origo table to shift from sculpture to table lamp and all emotions in between.
The handmade recinto volcanic stone used in the Origo Table lamp is illuminated by the opal glass, uncovering its nature and character.
