Metropol collection for Rakumba (2020)

Metropol is an elegant and versatile collectiondesigned in collaboration with Australian brand Rakumba.The vision for Metropol was for a decorative yet functional collection that is both sophisticated and simple. Like a pearl hanging from a thread, Metropol begins with a single lamp. What is really fascinating in the design is that there are many possibilities for arranging it. From a minimal wall version to a pendant, to the iconic grandeur of the chandelier setting. Central to Metropol’s design is the distinctive trifoliate form in combination with the innovative use of light.
Where shadows would normally exist along the converging line of each form, Rakumba has worked their ‘lighting magic’, using these fine seams to wrap a beautiful, soft cast of light around the luminaire.
