Softspot

Designed by Giopato & Coombes

As an architect and designer we have learnt one thing fast: don’t be afraid of the potential of a blank sheet of paper, which is the darkness when designing light. Out of the blue in 2014 we found ourselves not only designing but also developing and producing our own ideas, with a 2 week deadline following a 6 month journey through the backstreets of Murano, for an exhibition in Milan. It was an unbelievable time which saw us open a huge can of worms! With so many expertise to deal with, it was like two jugglers shifting in the air, directed by passion.

This passion drives us to ardently create, to tirelessly, impersistently investigate into the correct mix of ingredients. The path towards reality is not linear, it is more like a quest, like dungeons and dragons, researching into dangerous potions of materials, machinery and technology each directed by a master Venetian artisan.

Description

The minimal exterior hides an internal architecture manufactured with clockwork precision for extreme LED cooling.

The SoftSpot LED warm white bulb emits 75% light downwards for focused direct lighting and 25% upwards for low indirect lighting. The result is a soft interior atmosphere from a pure form.

The SoftSpot lamp is 100% designed and custom-made from the ceiling plate to the LED bulb. The single internal wheel component fuses together heat-sink, socket and cable block functions whilst allowing light to pass through.
