The origins

“In 2004, colour became part of our catalogue for the first time, with the PostKrisi collection. Colour was used as a message of rebirth and joy. Today, that colour is back.” Blue, yellow and red join fluo shades of pink, yellow, blue and orange, colouring hemispheres, rods, bases and surprising details that bring a lively touch to settings. The hemisphere is the hallmark feature of the new Ale range, composed of four different models: BE T, C, BIG and W, characterised by the unexpected detail of the fly resting on the hemisphere. Ale BE T is a wireless, battery-operated table lamp, so it can be moved around any setting.
