Nature, landscapes and gardens are themes that have always interested Martinelli Luce, a company that has developed extensive experience in the field of outdoor lighting, based on ongoing design research.
The company has collaborated recently with AIAPP – the Italian Landscape Architecture Association – to create a partnership that brings together know-how and expertise on both sides.
The bond with nature has been a source of inspiration for many indoor and outdoor projects. The outdoor lamp designed by Emiliana Martinelli, for example, imitates the boletus, a mushroom found in forests, with a semispherical cap. Amidst the vegetation in gardens, the slender structures of Boleto sprout up like mushrooms and also echo their particular color, thanks to the aluminium structure painted in a Cor-ten shade.
The direct LED lighting brightens pathways in gardens in a non-invasive way, sliding lightly on the ‘stem’ to illuminated the surrounding space. The stem comes in two heights, with a cylindrical base for ground attachment, permitting creation of luminous compositions.
