How is light important in everyday life? How does our mood change depending on the quantity and quality of the light that surrounds us? The sun and the moon do their part, on the outside, but when it comes to feeling good even within the walls of the house, the first investment to make is the right lighting. Yes, because the light does not allow us only to see better when it is dark: the light sources bring out the beauty of the objects, the purity of an expression, a space, and even a color. Lighting affects our way of living, our rest, our mood. A dimly lit room can put us in a bad mood and can annoy our eyes. The room itself becomes visibly narrower, smaller, disordered. But when we surround ourselves with lamps that send out a radiant light, and are beautiful objects to look at, the world appears to us more beautiful, clearer, pleasant, welcoming.
Viisi is a design object, minimal and linear in shape, that becomes an integral part of the living room decor. And then it is a suspension and floor lamp, coming from the creative minds of the designers Gio Minelli and Marco Fossati for Panzeri. Its modern and ergonomic shape recalls the movements of the javelin throwers, an idea by which Minelli and Fossati were inspired during the creative process. "We were inspired by speed, dynamism and motion. We built this lamp with a geometric structure on a pentagonal base (Viisi means 5), we wanted it to remember the shape of a spear"said the two designers for Panzeri. A functional object but also a decorative element, "to be planted on the ground like a real spear". Or, if used in suspension, the Viisi lamps "remember a battle of spears that are thrown into the sky". Lightness, purity, dynamism, to illuminate and lighten our living room.
The lines of the Viisi lamp are clean, minimal, as well as the material used: folded and engraved aluminum, born from a metal sheet previously worked to ensure sharp edges and a monolithic volume, with a clean and simple shape. On the other hand, the LED light guarantees a perfect lighting of the room. "We are delighted that Panzeri has selected this new creation for his latest advertising campaign, that coincides with the 70th anniversary of the company's birth", conclude Minelli and Fossati.
The suspended version of Viisi is available in two lengths, direct light, but also in the indirect light version, ideal for creating compositions in combination. The finish is opaque, with a light and minimal effect, made of polyacrylic paint in black or white, that makes it an ideal lamp for different environments: from the living room in contemporary style to the office in the city, an impeccable choice for large spaces.
To testify the validity of the product is a very important award of the interior design scene: the suspended and floor lamp Viisi has won, in fact, the Red Dot Award, a competition that has existed since 1954 and today is a recognized excellence brand worldwide for the quality of design and innovation. The nominations came this year from companies in 59 countries and each product was evaluated by an independent International jury. The award winners will be presented at the Red Dot Museum in Zollverein, Essen (Germany). Not only that: the Made in Italy company also took part in Light + Building, the famous decor and architectural lighting fair, just staged in Frankfurt.
