Carbon Fibre Ribbon Of Light

Carbon Fibre Ribbon Of Light

I would have assumed this lamp was aluminium, had designer Marcus Tremonto not explained…

“The complexity of curves and required thinness could not be duplicated in any other material while still maintaining its ability to support itself completely…”

Usually when I picture carbon fibre, I imagine that monotonous, slate-coloured slab that’s delicately thin but mostly flat — or I picture the Ossur cheetah legs that are curved but only for industrial utility.

I would have never imagined carbon fibre as a ribbon of light.
