Named after the lunar eclipse, Ferréol Babin’s ‘Lunaire’ is a wall lamp for Italy’s FontanaArte with a light effect reminiscent of the moon as it passes into the earth’s shadow.
“Lunaire is a wall lamp with a surprising light effect, reminiscent of the phenomenon produced by eclipses.” says Babin. “A smaller front disc containing the light source is set inside a large concave aluminium diffuser. Two different effects are possible depending on how the small disc is positioned with respect to the diffuser: back lighting when the front disc is closed, in other words pushed towards the wall, or from inside the diffuser when the disc is pulled forward.”
By simply pulling or pushing on the rod on the front of the disc it immediately changes the lighting effect. A large diffuser makes Lunaire an ideal lighting solution for big areas, residential or contract.
