The Reverb Lamps were designed by Alessandro Zambelli for the metal lighting specialist Zava. Drawing inspiration from carbide lamps, the new table lamps are crafted from metal except for the cord. The dishy design reflects the shape of traditional gas lamps, invented by Canadian Thomas Willson in 1892. Called carbide lamps, the technology was historically used in buildings and shipyards, as well as on bikes, and is still favored by some miners for its ability to cast broad swaths of light. Hence, Zambelli’s interpretation features a shallow, concave diffuser with a circular screen and a cylindrical base. The contemporary vision does not, however, contain actual carbide, instead running on electricity like many of the lamps of today. Debuting at Milan Design Week 2015, the item is LED-compatible and comes in one’s choice of red, turquoise, and beige.
