IXA is a high-powered LED lamp, designed in collaboration with Artemide. The lamp has an inherent dynamism that allows it to inhabit different typologies of light – from task focussed lighting to decorative and ambient compositions. Inspired by Alexander Calder’s sculptures, the design interprets the idea of ‘elegant balance’ through precision engineering.
Illustrating the versatility of the design, IXA is available in table, floor and wall configurations. The first phase of the collection offers a 100-millimetre opaque sphere, for focused settings, in four unique colourways: charcoal, slip, crane and ink.
The floor and wall configurations include a spherical head which is counterbalanced by a spherical weight at the opposing end of a slender stem. The head is connected to the stem through a magnetic socket that allows tactile rotation to any orientation, while the jack-connections at each junction allow for further flexibility. The second phase of the collection includes a larger translucent sphere for more ambient lighting configurations.
