Galileo Mini 3 pendant
The Galileo mini 3 pendant is designed for Lumina by Emanuele Ricci, are based on the principle of light refraction in order to find a new way of illuminating objects. Light patterns have been studied as in a scientific tool and the result is an object whose form is beyond all aesthetic criteria since it is generated by a mathematical computation; a object like no other object but still maintaining the Lumina style. No lamp was ever built this way: high thickness ultra transparent crystal layers bound with special resins and made into a concave lens which contains, reflects and transmits light thanks to special optical technologies. Once it is turned on, Galileo is magic: It seems to dissolve in its own light. Light rays penetrate the crystal, vanish from direct sight and come down to illuminate objects without glare, without shields or opacity, leaving the room in a relaxing half-light. The light follows its own path and Galileo transparent body becomes a light sphere, an energy bubble.
