Meltdown - Johan Lindsten
Cappellini presents the Meltdown lamp by the Swedish designer, Johan Lindstén. This lamp confirms that his attitude is synonymous with contemporary and avant-garde design. The project from the talented young Swedish designer debuted at the Salone Satellite Milan 2012 and astonished the design community. Now, in 2013, it is available to the public.
Meltdown, available through the Cappellini collection, is a lamp of thin coloured glass with a spherical shape that is hand blown in a mold. The inspirational idea was to create something beautiful spawned from the disastrous nuclear accident in Fukushima. The disaster is reflected in the lamps where the bulbs are about to melt through the last defense of the glass. The diameter of every lamp is the same width and they can be composed in the linear way or as a sprig of grapes.
The colors available are: dove, pink, tobacco, light blue, amethyst, amber.
