Atacama / Lamp Collection

The design of this lamp collection arises from the idea of building screens with flat pieces cut in a translucent and rigid material such as acrylic or Corian, thus covering the light source from all angles and generating a diffuse lighting much more appropriate for creating an atmosphere in any space.

To achieve this, Pedro Cerisola applied the symmetry of Platonic and Archimedean solids around a center, in this case a focus or source of light.

The result is a set of lamps that are constructed departing from simple geometric shapes and assembled without screws or adhesives. This, on the one hand, facilitates its storage and packaging and, on the other, involves the user in the assembly and final stage of the process of construction, promoting the appropriation of the object as a fundamental part of the design.

The collection of acrylic lamps departs from sacred geometry: basic patterns through which study, it is said, it is possible to obtain the final knowledge about the mysteries of the universe.

The paintings that are used as backgrounds in this photoshoot are the work of the Mexican abstract painter Guillermo Zapfe (1933 – 1992).

Aurora

Based on the geometry of the dodecahedron, a Platonic solid formed on the basis of regular pentagons, Aurora is a table lamp that produces a covert light with a moderate brightness.

This lighting piece is conceived to become an iconic element within the space it is placed.

Designer: Pedro Cerisola
Year: 2016
Dimensions: Ø 26 cm x 55 cm / Ø 10.2 in x 21.7 in
Material: Acrylic
Assembly: RTA
Meteoro

The Meteoro lamp is inspired by the Art Deco movement and gets its name from the wake that a meteorite leaves as it passes through the atmosphere.

It arises from an almost spherical structure, based on the geometric construction of a regular cuboctahedron, and generates a point of multi-shadow light, so it functions as an accent in any space.

Dimensions: Ø 26 cm x 54 cm / Ø 10.2 in x 21.2 in
Material: Acrylic
Assembly: RTA
Sputnik

Sputnik is the only figurative lamp from the Atacama Collection and, due to its shape and size, it can be used as either a floor or a table lamp.

It emits a regular and diffused light with moderate brightness making it ideal for children’s bedrooms.

Dimensions: Ø 32 cm x 61 cm / Ø 12.6 in x 24 in
Material: Acrylic
Assembly: RTA
Quihubo

Based on the geometry of the Platonic hexahedron or cube, Quihubo is a floor lamp that produces a covert light of moderate brightness that emerges from the edges.

With a pleasant, uniform and warm light distribution, it is ideal for both private spaces and public environments like bars, lounges, restaurants and hotels.

Designer: Pedro Cerisola
Year: 2016
Dimensions: Ø 50 cm x 50 cm / Ø 19.7 in x 19.7 in
Material: Acrylic
Assembly: RTA
Tristán

Tristán is a table lamp that emits a non dazzling and diffuse light creating a uniform and warm glow.

The lamp emerges from the geometric structure of the regular icosahedron the Platonic solid of twenty faces with the shape of equilateral triangles.

Designer: Pedro Cerisola
Year: 2016
Dimensions: Ø 24 cm x 55 cm /Ø 9.5 cm x 21.7 in
Material: Acrylic
Assembly: RTA
Renata

Inspired by the geometry of the Archimedean solids, the Renata lamp generates a powerful multi-shadow light that will not go unnoticed.

Designer: Pedro Cerisola
Year: 2016
