Orsa, introduced in 2016, is declined in two sizes to provide different light performances. In addition to the single suspension, it comes in two standard chandelier versions with three or five elements. The plastic body is shaped by the beam angle of light, which is diffused through a lens designed for the purpose. Light is thus cut out to strike the lower opaline part, which reflects it back with an even, non-glaring luminance and transforms the appliance into a suspended disc. An elegant and minimal object, Orsa is conceived for individual use or as part of a broader installation, both in standard versions and in custom-designed compositions. In fact, the Orsa project allows maximum application flexibility for customized solutions combining multiple elements. A multitude of lightweight transparent bodies that reach down to different heights can result into a surprising chandelier that plays with light, transparencies and reflections.
