Marset Theia Table Lamp Design by Mathias Hahn
Theia floor lamp, launched in 2016 by Marset, got its name from the Greek goddess who was believed to be the mother of both the Sun and the Moon. Thus, the spherical shapes of Theia are clearly reminiscent of the brightest elements in the sky.
According to the designer Mathias Hahn, he wanted to focus on not just the light but also shadows, because the two are inseparable – besides a beautiful, versatile light, Theia also creates well considered, softly casting shadows. Thanks to the metal lampshade that swivels around its axel, Theia’s appearance can be altered from bright, direct light to subtle, indirect light. A smoke-coloured plastic shade gives a dreamy touch for the lights and shadows of this extraordinary luminaire.SHOP NOW SHOP NOW
