The H2O Table Lamp from the Gubi collection is extremely eclectic in aesthetic, but exemplary in pragmatics. It features a unique industrial design that looks absolutely outstanding because of its distinguished aesthetics. Simple, yet meticulously intricate at the same time, the design of the H2O Table Lamp is a contradiction of looks; straightforward yet ephemeral and intricate yet bulky at the same time.
This lamp was a joint design venture by Barbara Corsini and Joaquim Ruiz Millet. The inspiration for its design is quite architectural, and is expertly articulated in the vaulted resting-feet and the cylindrical upper-half of this table lamp. The basic form and function of the H2O Table Lamp has been superimposed on the PD2 Floor Lamp that was first designed by Corsini for the interior of the iconic La Pedrera building in Barcelona. This unique inspiration is what gives the H2O Table Lamp its distinguished looks.
The historical significance of the H2O Table Lamp can be realized by understanding the actual events that transpired before its creation. It was a collaborative effort by Joaquim Ruiz Millet and Corsini to revive the authentic interior design pieces of the La Pedrera when it was being torn down. As such, the heritage of the H2O Table Lamp is quite rich and inspired at the same time.
Anyone looking for a bit of history and style in a single package would absolutely love the H2O Table Lamp.
