The goal was to create a lamp resembling a light beam descending from a floating marble top and bouncing back against a large marble bottom plate.



The illuminated empty space between the pieces of heavy Carrara marble and smooth shaping gave rise to the name Apollo, creating something like a light vacuum. The form has been softly and directly curved, just as a beam of light would bounce on the floor. Glass is a fragile material; however, in tube form from quality mass it becomes extremely strong, thus allowing for the creation of this lovely tension between the two materials. The lamp was conceived as a lighting sculpture, with the white light revealing the structure of the Carrara marble. Because it uses an LED source, the Apollo lamp can deliver all types of light.
