Enjoy flexibility with String by Rotaliana

Italian architects, Dante Donegani and Giovanni Lauda, innovate with the adjustable String Lamp.

Architects Dante Donegani and Giovanni Lauda from the D & L studio in Italy have released their most recent minimalist creation to highlight the trend towards simplicity in modern architecture. Donegani and Lauda’s String Lamp was designed for Italian manufacturer Rotaliana for their latest collection of ‘Enlightenments.’ Rotaliana dictated that their ‘Enlightenments’ were not just compositions for the ‘elite’ but rather ‘exceptional’ products directed to a broad and international public.

With this in mind, Donegani and Lauda sought to create a lamp that was both flexible and stylish. The result is the creation of the LED String series, which offers an adjustable and dynamic lighting structure.

The String Lamp is unified by a thin metal section that bends and rotates in all directions. The two arms structure of the lamp is a double-T section made from extruded aluminium. The movement is balanced by an in-section flowing elastic chord which is covered by a synthetic coloured textile.

The avant-garde nature of Rotaliana encourages designers to use new light sources and introduce innovative aesthetics and functions. Their 2011 collection of ‘enlightenments’ is composed by different lamps, all characterised by the use of LED lighting. The use of LEDs grants luminous brightness and energy efficiency with only a 7.2W consumption. String combines LED technology, freedom of movement and modern design, making it suitable for both traditional and contemporary décor.

Donegani and Lauda feature alongside some of the world’s most award-winning designers such as Toyo Ito and Kengo Kuma in Rotaliana’s 2011 ‘Enlightenment’ range. The sleek essence and flexible body of the String lamp makes it one of the most timeless and multifunctional pieces within the collection.
