Heis is a floor lamp in metal and blown glass.
The idea behind Heis, the dimmable floor lamp designed by Matteo Fiorini for Mason Editions, derives from quantum mechanics, and in particular from Heisemberg's first indeterminacy principle.
Composed of pure and rigorous forms - a tubular iron frame, an acid-etched glass sphere containing light, and metal disks - Heis takes up in the concept l’enunciato that establishes the limits of knowledge and measurement of a physical system.
The indeterminacy principle assumes that the properties that define the state (positioning or motion) of an elementary particle cannot be measured simultaneously and with extreme accuracy. The impossibility of observing a phenomenon without in turn perturbing some of its qualities, in fact, makes the spectator and his intervention produce incalculable effects every time. This theory that takes up the concept of relativity of point of view and experience, reiterating the lack of a fixed and rigid absolute, is an integral part of the Heis lamp design: contained in the glass sphere, the light source, suspended inside the rigorous metal structure, it is free to move and sway inside, making the proportions and symmetries between the elements changeable. A lability that seems to touch even the small metal disk, which seems to float in the structure, acting as an original support surface, illuminated by the small "sun" suspended over it.
190 cm high, Heis is perfect as an entrance lamp, using the intermediate floor to empty pockets, but also positioned next to the sofa or between two armchairs in the living room, recreating an elegant lounge configuration.
The metal structure is available with gray, black, taupe, burgundy and sage green material paint, to meet different areas of taste.
Heis, to illuminate the interior with an ever new and never banal light.
