Its elegant and decorative style- a sort of geometric dialog between the metallic tubular structure and the spherical diffusers- is what distinguishes this family of lamps. The diffusers are made of free blown glass, and are available both in a glossy or satin texture, either white or lobster-red. The lamps are fitted with a dimmer placed on the structure of the lamp, which makes it easy to reach and to control the intensity of the light. The light provided by the highly efficient halogen bulbs is filtered by the glass spheres, and give diffused, warm and enveloping light.
