Vetra S Table Lamp by Marset. Avaible in 2 finishes: black or white.
At first glance, Vetra could be no more than a traditional, old-fashioned, blown-glass lamp, but
turning it on yields a surprise. Much of the light is directed downward, and the rest is filtered
toward the inside of the shade, subtly illuminating it.
In the table and floor versions, the stem is divided into two unequal parts, a feature that breaks the symmetry, adds beauty and elegantly provides an outlet for the cable.
Dimensions Height: 54cm x Diameter: 32cm. Base Diameter: 26cm.
Materials & Finishes Matte-finish blown glass shade with lacque-red aluminium dissipater. Base and stem in lacquered iron. 3 positions sensor dimmer. Color: White or Black.
Light Source (included) LED SMD 11W 700mA. 2700K.
The Illuminated Lamp
At first glance, Vetra could be no more than a traditional, old-fashioned, blown-glass lamp, but turning it on yields a surprise. Joan Gaspar uses a completely closed glass diffuser as a reflector, and creatively places the light source outside -instead of inside- the shade. The Vetra gives off more light than one would expect, without glare. Much of the light is directed downward, and the rest is filtered toward the inside of the shade, subtly illuminating it. Like an echo multiplying the light, when it’s on, its entire outline is drawn out and seems to come alive.
Joan Gaspar's designs comprise successful, beautiful and purely functional ideas.
Joan Gaspar is a spanish designer, working with companies such as Marset, Mobles 114, Santa & Cole and Serralunga. Joan Gaspar studied industrial design in the school of Artes y Oficios in Barcelona. In 1988 he started work for Vapor SA, a small company in Barcelona manufacturing minimalist lamps. From 1992 Joan Gaspar collaborated with a variety of firms to create new product lines.
"lamps that have to come unnoticed: even when they are lighted their aim is to give well-being and warmness."
Joan Gaspar opened its own studio in Barcelona in 2002 in addition to its job as creative director at Marset.
"What makes a product good or not so good, depends on the designer and in great part on the firm that produces it and, above all, on how it produces it, how it launches it into the market, how it communicates it, and how it promotes it. Among all of these 'how', I would stand out the 'how it produces it'. Technical solutions and the materials that are used determine the image and functionality of the product, there lies its success or its failure," states Joan Gaspar.
