Platone by Filippo Protasoni
The Platone wall lamp by Filippo Protasoni was designed to be almost imperceptible; with its minimal lines, it’s made to reflect light on the wall.
The platone lamp is made of matt white painted thermoplastic moulded shell, with aluminium reflector and metal wall support. The lamp looks like a bended arc with a sweeping affect to indirectly project light on the wall and make it softer.

Born 1980, studied in Italy and Norway.

After different assignments in international studios (Emmanuel Babled, Markusbeneschcreates and Pierandrei Associati), he opened his own practice in Milan in 2009.
His work focuses on product and interior design: creating products for furniture and lighting industries, hotel, retail and commercial spaces, exhibitions and small limited editions, borderline between art and design.
