Asola Ceiling Lamp
Design by Evangelos Vasileiou
The Asola ceiling lamp is a glimpse of the Seventies and Eighties, as much in terms of the material used – perforated steel – and its white colour as its stylised mushroom-like shape. The latter evokes the emblematic lights of the period such as Giancarlo Mattioli’s Nesso light (1967) or Mario Botta’s Shogun (1986), which was designed for Artemide.
The extreme purity of form of this suspended light, being the simple association of several cylinders of differing heights and diameters, confers an air of clarity, a guarantee of timeless seduction.
The shade (H 51 – Ø 60 cm) comprises 3 cylinders made from satin white lacquered perforated sheet steel. The light is suspended from 3 x 150 cm steel wires with ‘coulistop’ mechanism.
White lacquered ceiling fitting (H 3 – Ø 12 cm). Supplied with 1 x 116 W E 27 standard (classic A) eco halogen bulb.
A family company since 1860 when Antoine Roset opened a wood processing factory in France’s Ain province, Ligne Roset is now that country’s leading furniture exporter, with a presence in 71 countries worldwide. It is led today by the fourth generation of the Roset family – brothers Michel and Pierre and their sons Antoine and Olivier.
Ligne Roset is distinguished from other manufacturers by its tradition of close collaboration with both established and emerging designers, matching its deeply-held belief in design with investment and technical innovation. The past 40 years have seen collaborations with award winning Didier Gomez, Pascal Mourgue, Peter Maly and the Bouroullec brothers, among others, resulting in complementary furniture collections and decorative accessories, lighting, rugs, textiles and occasional items.
Such design collaborations have seen Ligne Roset win many accolades including the Red Dot Design Award on a number of occasions. The Red Dot dates back to 1955 and is one of the world’s most distinguished design awards.
All Ligne Roset products are developed at the company’s own factories in Briord, France, to ensure quality control from beginning to the end. The Ligne Roset name is stamped on each product as an external symbol of perfection.Dimensions
