Soho is presented as a statement, in recognition of the merits of the lamps traditionally used in markets, taverns and cafeterias. After studying different volumes, proportions and materials, new uses and lighting effects have emerged.
The use of rotation-moulded polyethylene allows us to easily offer this fixture in a wide range of sizes. Whereas before the Soho collection offered diameters of 57 and 112 cm, now it’s also available in a smaller size, measuring just 38 cm. This new size is more appropriate for smaller spaces, and increases the overall versatility of this fixture. This new size is also available as a new outdoor floor lamp, thus completing the collection.

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.
