The Halo Project is the result of the optical research carried out by Mandalaki Design Studio whose goal is the union of art with technology. The light is no longer treated as a source of illumination but as a graphic projection, precise and defined. A tension is established between the physical object and the metaphysical projection. The result is a new family of lamps designed for different landscapes, capable of creating worlds of nuance in which people can dive.
Mandalaki studio creates lights that cast boldly coloured orbs inspired by beautiful landscapes. The Milan-based studio sees designing light as a way of expanding the perception of reality itself and works to research precise combinations of specific colours that disconnect us from smartphones or computers, as when we linger to view a sunset or gaze at a fire burning in the hearth.
Compared to a normal lamp, Halo has the distinctive feature of projecting analogical shades of different hues altogether, as in nature. By contrast, a normal LED lamp enables you to choose only the colour temperature or the colour itself, just one at a time.
“The idea is to reconstruct breathtaking landscapes through light as if it were a space-time window that can take us to a specific place at a particular moment in a fraction of time,” the studio explains. “…where colours, sensations and emotions come together defining a unique experience for each of us.”
