Fascinating lighting effects: Slamp Veli
Adriano Rachele has created the prize-winning Veli collection for the Italian lighting company Slamp
In 2012, the “Oscar of Design”, as the red dot award is also called, has been awarded to the Slamp Veli ceiling light
which received that seal of approval for quality and innovation. Indeed, the combination of outstanding design and enchanting lighting effect proves very impressive:
The diffusor of the Veli
ceiling lamp consists of Opalflex®, an exclusive material which is recyclable and patented by Slamp
. Luminous, opalescent and as attractive as glass, versatile and unbreakable as plastic, Opalflex® is a totally original mix of polymers and specific additives with unique properties for the emanation of light. The gradation of the colours, which is also brought about by serigraphic means, renders the lamps into luminous presences which create a specifically unmistakable atmosphere. In English, Veli means veil, shroud or gauze. When taking a closer look at this lighting fixture, it becomes clear that the Veli ceiling light
embodies all of those words. The Opalflex® has colored highlighting on its edges and is then formed to look like fabric with its gentle folds. With its soft character it also reminds of an artfully draped cotton ball.
At the same time, the antistatic-treated Slamp Veli ceiling light
provides even, diffuse light distribution out of its extremely light-conducting body. Moreover, thanks to its breathtaking design, it stages a charming lighting scenario that shows off to its best advantage in a bedroom. Very remarkable: Whether you decide on opal white, maroon, violet, grey, light blue, red or on the “Prism” version, the colour accents that emerge at the cut surfaces of the diffusor elements make for highly decorative effects – whereas the light of the ceiling light
remains pure. Mounting is also exceptionally easy: Three magnets keep the diffusor attached to the ceiling so that the replacement of light sources becomes a child’s play.
Comfortable mood lighting over the dining table in the dining room or over the coffee table in the living room is the is the core skill of the Slamp Veli pendant light
. This suspension lamp also catches the eye of the viewer immediately and delights him with atmospheric illumination. As an outstanding element of decoration which has been artistically crafted by hand, this pendant light
gives its environment a noticeable visual upgrade in a truly unique way. Like the Slamp Veli
ceiling light, the Veli pendant light proves to be easy to handle: Thanks to a magnetic support system it can be easily mounted or taken off – for example when it has to be replaced of cleaned.
The Slamp Veli Large ceiling light
is the larger version of the luminaire mentioned first, featuring a diameter of 78 cm and exploiting its full potential in representative environments. With just 32 cm diameter, the Slamp Veli Mini ceiling light gives a small kitchen a gentle touch of extravaganza.
Slamp Veli lamps are used as wall lights as well. Additional information about the designer: Adriano Rachele was born in 1984 in Mulheim a.d. Ruhr, Germany.
