Re-styling for a garden light
Delta plata ADI-FAD
These light was designed especially for outdoors, although it can also be placed indoors and occasionally be used as table or stand function. This ambiguity of the light fixture has encouraged metalarte to update it.
“Ever since I was small, I have been fascinated both by gardens and lamps, so this union was a real challenge. Perhaps the contrast with the plant shapes led me to design a very rational and clean object. A cube formed by louvers. I don’t remember how it happened, but the influence of admirable traditional Japanese architecture is evident in this project. Not for nothing are they grand masters interrelating architecture and gardens. Dojo —place where Zen Buddhism is practiced— is a part of a collection originally called Ishi Doro, meaning ‘garden lantern’ in Japanese”.
Dojo won an ADIFAD Silver Delta award in 1999.
Antoni Arola designed it especially for outdoors, with materials treated to resist the weather, although it can also be placed indoors and occasionally be used as table or stand function. This ambiguity of the light fixture has encouraged metalarte to update it, to adapt it to different environments and give it greater personality, with new finishes added to the classic extruded aluminium finish and which are characterised by the absence of colour: white, rust and gold.
