Manufactured from a single plastic band rolled up on it, the structure can be manipulated to change the form and the orientation of the light. The metal arches are equipped with small plastic parts making possible to uphold the lamp in various positions. The Eclipse lamp is delivered in a flat pack, similar to a “pizza box”.
Mauricío Klabin was a designer, photographer and mechanical engineer. One of the main points of his work was to inspire a feeling of well-being and protection or, more precisely, to give us this sensation of being taken in someone’s arms. His work is characterized by the absence of salient angles, complex requirements or complicated instructions of use. His projects are at the same time simple and direct. His Eclipse Lamp was acquired by the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
