Bover - Moai B/35 Outdoor
by Gonzalo Milà
Moai is made from reinforced concrete, allowing this to be suited for commercial projects as well as residential. Its creativity lies not so much in the choice of material, but rather in the form that Gonzalo Milà gives it and how the light plays with and penetrates that form. From behind, the lamp seems straight and hard, while front lines are softened. Moai comes with a dimmable LED source that projects light downward. An optical lens has been added to the LED, which works as a magnifying glass, generating in turn a laterally projecting cone of light. And there is the interesting surprise: all of Moai’s concavity appears illuminated without leaving any corner in the dark. “The external bollards illuminate the ground or itself but without playing with the shape”, explains Gonzalo.
