LAYLA NEW LAMP BY SERENA CONFALONIERI
Layla is the new table lamp designed by Serena Confalonieri as a result of her the collaboration with MM Lampadari.
Its shape reminds the old oil lamps and nightstand lights, warm and reassuring objects that give the room an intimate atmosphere, recalling a domestic imaginary. The name Layla derives from the Arabic word ليلى (laylah) which means “night” and suggests a use of the lamp in the most intimate spaces: it keeps us company until the moment of sleep.
These glass table lamps are handblown and characterized by curvy and cozy shapes. The finishes chosen by Serena Confalonieri diversify the upper part, transparent and monochromatic, from the lower one, opaque and striped. The lamp thus becomes entirely a lighting body: in the upper part the light is more direct, filtered only by the color of the transparent glass, while in the lower part the opaque glass allows only a part of it to pass, transforming itself into a translucent body. The result is a kaleidoscopic mix of colors, a perfect dialogue between form and decoration.
The images shot for the collection’s launch, under Serena Confalonieri’s art direction, interpretate the concept recreating a world between reality and dream, referring to ethereal and surreal atmospheres.
