‘Osux’ is a collection of three anodized-spun-aluminium and powder-coated steel lamps realised by the Barcelona-based multidisciplinary design studio CreativeAffairs. Designed in 2011, the series ‘is based on the idea of spinning, repetition and symmetry’ and encompasses a floor, table and pendant models, all of which feature a distinctive brightly-coloured exposed cable.
From the designers:
‘OSUX is a new family of lights comprised by a Table, Floor and Suspension Lamp. The idea behind this design is to enhance the cable as a conduit of lighting. The formal language is based on the idea of spinning, repetition and symmetry. The lampshade is made of anodized spun aluminium and it is shaped to contain three sources of light and the electrical fittings. It also has a disk of opalescent glass used as a diffuser. Once assembled, the lampshade can be used in the three typologies of lights. The frame for the floor lamp is shaped as a hanger and it can be adjusted in three different points, giving versatility and practicality to the object. The table lamp is formed as a tripod and it has been made as a support for the lampshade to sit on. They are both made of steel and powder coated in black.’
