This Leria mask lighting floating in the air and over the table was designed by Spanish designer Arturo Alvarez as an art object, a light accent in the interior to attract attention and daily admiration. The lamp was first presented by Arturo Alvarez at the ISaloni 2019 furniture fair in Milan.
Leria table lamp, is a metal net mask, which is integrated into a round platform that rotates with the strength and magnetism of magnets. Illuminated by a LED, the piece is projected on the wall. When activating the magnets, it turns on itself, suspended in the air.
“At the end, the only thing that’s left are interpersonal relationships”, states Arturo Álvarez. The Leria lamp is produced in a limited edition series - only 49 pieces.
Arturo Álvarez continues to explore human communication. Wealth is found in miles of years of creation, uses, improvements, disuse, conventions and parallel corrections in the development of human intelligence. The language can be used in the colloquial, loving and fraternal way, but also as a means of management, separation, confrontation or deception. The author wanted, with this new look, to focus on the friendly and friendlier uses that can be established in conversations, perhaps, an approach to the other, to take into account in times of convulsion.”
