Description

The Candil lamp was conceived as a table version of the Cornucopia lamp. In appearance they are different, but their technical principle is the same: the rule of three. In succession, there are only three are the elements/materials that compose the lamps and allow the lighting of the light bulb: copper, wood, and brass.

In this series of lamps (including Cornucopia, Candil, and Laflaca), the object itself becomes a natural extension of the electric cable. The negative pole (copper), the positive pole (brass), and the insulator (wood) play two roles and together they become the substance and shape of the product.

The light bulb acts as the ON/OFF switch completing the circuit when it is placed into the hole of the bowl. They are special bulbs of 24 Volts 25 Watts which only use half of the power. This feature does not only avoid excessive warming or failure but thanks to a carefully selected amount of light, it transports us to the intimate and pleasant world of the candlelight.

The Candil lamp offers a visual and tactile experience with its natural materials and the warmth of the light that it spreads. As a modern version of a candlelight, it is meant to enchant and transport us to an intimate and pleasant world.

Input 220V – Output 12V
