luzia 


A family of lamps designed past the expectations and functionality of lighting. The lamps create beauty in sustainability and build roots, resembling those of our ancient civilizations, rather than additions within the space. Their sculptural characteristics bring an enlightening experience for the user through an engaging self-assembly between wood and concrete pieces.
