NIMBA by Antoni Arola
Santa & Cole
stainless steel, plastic
Nimba is the first lamp designed by Antoni Arola. It is a floating ring of light formed by a metal profile that houses the light source and a lower shade to diffuse the light. Nimba is named after the halo or aureole of the holy depictions – “it can be seen but is not there” – and owing to its arrangement, the light focuses in the middle of nothing in order to spread the light in all directions.
Used in a single unit or with several, Nimba creates incorporeal, spiritual atmospheres; it illuminates in a diffused, though effective fashion and is perfect for thoroughfares and retreats. The series comprises four models of increasing diameter, all using LEDs and seamlessly fusing simplicity and high-tech.
