STELLAR WORKS x LUCA NICHETTO THE FIRST COLLABORATION WITH MULTIDISCIPLINARY DESIGNER
Stellar Works has unveiled Space Invaders, its first collaboration with multidisciplinary designer Luca Nichetto. Space Invaders is an eclectic collection of functional objects with a bold character and consists of luminous Murano beads, solid wood and minimalist metal frames, which are combined to create a playful group of timeless design objects, able to “invade” a variety of environments. The collection includes the Dhala table and rechargeable lamps, the Hoba integrated floor lamp and the Lonar and Kaali trays.
With the same playfulness that characterises each piece in the Space Invaders collection, the Dhala table and floor lamps merge functionality with quality of materials and craftsmanship. Supported by a minimal metal frame and resting on a ceramic base, the lamps feature a series of colourful Murano glass beads, in a variety of different finishes that create an original modular design with stacked elements, while a hidden LED strips give a warm glow from within the beads. With optional legs and both cable and rechargeable versions available, the Dhala lamp is a versatile and playful design for a multitude of environments.
The Lonar tray references the shape of a yo-yo, featuring two circular plates with relief edges that are joined in the centre, creating a space between them that allows the tray to be comfortably gripped. The Kaali tray embodies all the qualities of the Space Invaders collection; objects devoted not only to invade the environment in which they are located, but also composed of elements that are different in shape and materiality, which surprisingly mix and steal each other's space.
On the collection Luca Nichetto says: “Space Invaders is a perfect example of our mission at Nichetto Studio to show the beauty in function. The collection demonstrates our shared belief with Stellar Works in understanding the strengths and limitations of different techniques to give purpose to forms and ensure the enjoyment of the user.”*
