The Air family was an idea of Irish designer Ray Power, who, from the start was fascinated by the huge potential offered by Polywood®. He started to manipulate the wood and explored its wide range of possibilities to create tridimensional objects. In this case the result was a conical stand and shade set which suggests visual and technical stability. Even in the table version this lamp preserves its lightness, adapting itself to very different environments. A good choice for a wide range of places, from private homes to commercial areas.
