Recto-Verso lamp designed by Bina Baitel is one of the winners of VIA Design 2015. The reversible lamp will be launched during the Salone Internazionale del Mobile.
The Recto_Verso lamps are super thin OLED devices, divided into panel segments and covered by a layer of colored leather.
Fold the light up, like a window shade, to adjust the amount of light they emit. The collection includes floor lamps, table lamps, and wall fixtures.
The design is made possible by OLEDs, which are lightweight, flexible and less energy-intensive than incandescent or fluorescent lighting. One of the main benefits of OLEDs is that they can be embedded in textiles, making them ideal for experimental fashion and furniture design.
