Ginger Pendant Light by MARSET, diameter 60cm. Available in 2 finishes: Natural Oak or Wenge.
Wood is a great ally of cozy lighting. It is a material that it is hard to mold, a challenge that the Ginger collection neatly resolves. The shade is just 4 mm thick due to the high-pressure shaping of materials. The lamp appears almost entirely flat, which discreetly lights up spaces with indirect light.
The LED-Ginger Lamp is an extraordinary lightweight disk that pays tribute to the 1960's rock band, Ginger Baker of Cream.
Dimensions Height: 200cm x Diameter: 60cm. Cable length: maximum 2 meters.
Material & finishes Pressed wood diffuser of 4mm in Natural Oak or Wenge. Injected and lacquered black metal matte aluminium dissipater.
Light source (included) : LED SMD 28, 5W 700mA 2700K
The Marset Ginger Lamp, designed by Joan Gaspar features an extraordinarily lightweight light disk, paying tribute to the drums of Ginger Baker of Cream, the 1960s rock band.
With this collection, Gaspar resolves the challenge of using wood – a material that is so hard to mould, yet is desirable to use due to its strong associations with cozy lighting. He manages to achieve ultimate simplicity by using a design and method with great complexity.
This particular version comes with a rechargeable lithium-ion battery located in the base of the lamp, which allows for wireless, portable, independent illumination.
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.

"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.
