Maranga sounds exotic. And indeed, Christophe Mathieu was inspired by fruit for the design of the Maranga Suspension Lamp for Marset.
It reinterprets Scandinavian style through its shape. Its rational use of lighting generates a warm, comfortable atmosphere.
The shade is comprised of 32 slice-like pieces which fit together and allow slivers of light to escape. This contrast of light and shadow generates an effect that prevents glare, while an opening at the bottom fitted with a diffuser provides direct, downward light. Its flattened shape combined with the modern materials used in its design make the Maranga visually lighter.
"My goal is to create lights which transmit emotion, lights which one can in a sense fall in love with." - Christophe Mathieu
Christophe Mathieu transitioned from being a professional swimmer to the world of design. He graduated in Interior Design from the School of Applied Art and Artistic Trades (la Llotja), in Barcelona. Afterward, he headed to Milan.
In Milan, he collaborated with industrial designers and many architects in the development of products for several companies such as De Padova, Menphis and Driade. His time in Milan had a profound effect on him.
In 1989, he decided to move to Barcelona where he is one of Marset's veteran designers, and worked also for companies such as Bose, Bover, Chupa-Chups and Nike.
