A.D.A. By Tacchini Edizioni
Fiberglass table lamp
The A.D.A. lamp arises, as often occurs, from other forms. Little-by-little, during the design and engineering stages, it was transformed and, in some regards, simplified, until it achieved its final contours, reminiscent of the archetype of a table lamp.
The simple design is formed by two truncated cones joined by a plate, while its strength derives from the material: tinted fiberglass which, illuminated from within, becomes translucent, offering a glimpse of the fibers from which it is made. The name A.D.A. draws a parallel between the shape of the object and the pronunciation of the word. Made up of two “A”s, Ada is the shortest feminine palindrome, just as the lamp is made up of two conical geometrical structures reminiscent of the same letter.
