Alessandro Zambelli has designed a creative wooden table lamp named Woodspot for Seletti. “Zambelli’s new work is a table lamp assembled and varnished entirely by hand. Joined to the moulded support are a base and a light diffuser, both in pine with a natural finish.
The diffuser itself is available in ivory white, flesh pink or pastel green. The base of the contemporary lamp rests at an angle, like the prop of a photo frame. It supports a light diffuser with the unexpected look of a three-dimensional frame, projected to the boundary of unreality.
The object’s highly unusual profile stands out. This is an iconic shape, which imposes itself on space. The emerging beam lightens the solid materiality of the wood and casts a warm and compact pool of light in the surrounding darkness.
It may seem a figment of the imagination, yet it remains firmly anchored in a quintessentially material reality.
There is nothing schematic about Alessandro Zambelli’s new design, for this is a tale of the unexpected. Woodspot simultaneously surprises, fascinates and enchants, because it conceals something mysterious within itself. This visionary synthesis of material, light and shade blurs the boundaries of everything.
