With the idea of creating an object that gives an illusion of multiplying endlessly, Doriana and Massimiliano Fuksas used light as a medium to create this illusion in the form of a lamp. Made from the strata of materials such as Cristaflex and Lentiflex and then perforated, the hexagonal cut outs are placed strategically one behind another in order to give a diffused glow from the lamp that makes it appear as if the volume is really multiplying.  Available in blue, orange and white and in 3 different sizes, what makes this lamp stand out is the kind of warm glow that it gives. Apart from that, each lamp holds the unique property of fitting into a modern minimalist setting as well as a more ornamental middle-eastern decor.
