Modern lamps inspired by Greek mythology.
Based in London, German designer Mathias Hahn has built an impressive portfolio of award-winning designs. His work often combines simple mechanical systems with traditional materials and a minimalist aesthetic, providing fresh twists on classic concepts. The Theia lamps follow the same pattern but they also integrate a more poetic idea in their refined design. Created for Marset, the two lamps draw inspiration from Greek mythology. More specifically, they reference Theia, the goddess of the sun, moon, and dawn. The design explores the relationship between light and shadow in a creative way.
Two half-spheres swivel on a central axis. One turns horizontally, while the other moves on a vertical plane. As they intersect or swivel away from each other, they change the brightness of the light. The opaque metal lampshade can hide the light bulb, while the transparent shade that boasts a smoked finish softens its glow. Thus, the dynamic lamps easily transform the mood of a room. The user can focus the light on a specific point – on a desk or a book – or turn the light towards the wall to create a warm atmosphere. Available in two versions, the sculptural Theia lamps offer a stylish lighting solution for modern interiors. Now, you can find both the Theia Table Lamp and the Theia Floor Lamp in the Gessato shop.
