Recto Verso

VIA design award 2015
Recto-Verso is a reversible lamp that uses OLED* technology, organic light-emitting diodes made of carbon and hydrogen-base materials in the form of extremely fine light-weight plaques.
It is designed as a free-standing structure and has a leather pull-over sheath like the pou


ch of touch pad. The luminescent plaques are integrated to the reverse side and with a touch of the hand can be activated to create varied atmospheres: direct light when the emitter side is face-up, indirect mood-lighting in reversed mode.
By associating an intuitive gesture with component that uses advanced nano-technology, the Recto-Verso lamp offers new interaction with light.
*OLED is an organic light-emitting diode in which the emissive electroluminescent layer is a film of organic compound which emits light in response to an electric current.
