�Venti� is the new lighting creation by architect-designer Alessandro Mendini. Bright, powerful but delicate light: white sinuous forms are wrapped around the light, using it to create a labyrinthine atmosphere of opalescent �motifs�. The new creation was named Venti, winds, in the sense of Venti, the plural of wind: flux, air, energy.
What´s in a Slamp? A totally new style of creating light and furnishing. International design and creativity, innovative materials and Italian production, at accessible prices. Nothing like it has ever been seen before: it�s a Slamp.
