Theia’s formal design is elementary and streamlined: two half-spheres, one placed horizontally and the other vertically, which intersect with each other. These formal elements make it possible for the light from a source to be simultaneously projected, reflected, and absorbed by objects. In Theia, the materials and shapes are merely the physical manifestations of the underlying concept: merging both light and shadow in a single piece.

 
Simply swivel the fixture around its central axis to discover Theia’s two faces. It can be pointed to use as a reading lamp, or towards an object or a wall, creating a subtle, indirect light that immediately warms the atmosphere. Because Theia’s metal lampshade is totally opaque, this swivelling movement totally shifts the perception of the piece.
