Bucky lamp | Pallucco, Italy| 2010
x

Bucky is just like a kite which appears from nowhere, light as a feather, twisting and turning, lit up by the white, orange and blue reflections of the filters placed at the ends of its diffusers.

Bucky is a minimal yet surprisingly rigid composition, the only definition being the soft touch cable which is pulled tight, giving it shape and structure. As well as carrying the electric current, the wire also provides support for the three blown glass rods, hanging like an acrobat from a rope.

Bucky also pays tribute to Richard Buckminster “Bucky” Fuller, the visionary American architect and designer who was the first to experiment with tensile structures, which have been used to create this lampshade.

Lamp available in pendant and floor version, consisting of three 700 mm milk white blown glass rods. The orange and blue versions are fitted with two coloured glass filters in each rod.
For the floor version supporting frame in tubular steel lacquered mat white (RAL 9003)
Connecting wire in white silicone.
The lamp is fitted with six energy saving 40 W halogen light bulbs (two for each rod) with a G9 socket (220V and 110V).
