Wood modules that resemble oversized pincers are repeated to create patterned lampshades in Stick, a lighting collection by Matali Crasset for Fabbian.

Says Crasset, "This detail is the vocabulary that gives life to a lamp collection based on its repetition."


"While the texture of the wood permits diffusing a soft and warm light, the repetition of the module creates an effect of unexpected graphics and shadows."


"It all starts with a single module which behaves like a pliant material: this way, the light source is covered and 'tamed' and a veiled light is diffused from the smoothness of the wood."


"The goal to be achieved is for the light to develop in the interior, creating separate areas and, at the same time, to filter without fully delimiting the spaces; this type of effect is achieved thanks to 'space-objects' which have this dual function."


"It is a return to the essence and a way of showing that design is first and foremost creative strength."


The collection consists of a table lamp, a wall lamp, four floor lamps and five suspension lamps featuring four different diffuser shapes.
