OMA draws on the "fundamentals of geometry" for XY180 lights

OMA partner Ippolito Pestellini Laparelli explains how the firm explored “a fascination with point, line and surface” to create a lighting system, in this movie Dezeen produced for Delta Light.

The XY180 collection, which Delta Light first unveiled during Milan design week last year, is a modular lighting system designed around a hinged fixture that allows a range of different luminaires to be connected together.

The lighting elements comprise tube lights of different lengths, as well as spotlights in two sizes, which can be combined in a variety of different configurations.

“This is the first time that OMA has designed a lighting product with a very strong and specific identity,” says Laparelli, a partner at the Rotterdam-based architecture firm led by Rem Koolhaas.

“It is based on a fascination for very essential geometries – probably the fundamentals of geometry – a point, a line and a surface.”
