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.
