Solid, structural and concrete yet soft, fluid and abstract. Levico combines the organic sinuousness of the curve with the solid architectural presence of CONCRETE® in a series of contrasts, an oxymoron of form and material which comes together in an iconic and minimal object. Inspired by the slow shaping action of rivers, Levico handles light as if it were liquid, an erosional force which can itself shape the body of the lamp.

To do this, Levico begins with the quintessential architectural element – the column, and allows light to find its own shape, evoking the romantic encounter between the forces of nature and artifice. Like a mountain spring, the light source is isolated and concealed; like the water of a river, the light carves its course through the body of the lamp, leaving behind hollows and dips which soften the diffusion.
