Lunaire lamp by Ferréol Babin for FontanaArte

Lunaire is a wall lamp, designed by French designer Ferréol Babin for Italian brand FontanaArte, with a surprising light effect, reminiscent of the phenomenon produced by eclipses. A smaller front disc containing the light source is set inside a large concave aluminium diffuser.

Different effects and moods are possible depending on how the small disc is positioned with respect to the diffuser. It offers either an intense direct light, or an indirect and soft one that spreads on the wall. By simply pulling or pushing on the rod on the front of the disc it immediately changes the lighting effect.

Founded in 1932 by Gio Ponti, FontanaArte is one of the Italian companies that have written the “history of lighting and furnishing” in Italy and around the world.
